We'd exchange cup for victims' lives, says Mourinho

Both Mkhitaryan and Pogba were signed in the 2016 summer transfer window as Mourinho added four new players to the squad that the Portuguese coach inherited from Louis van Gaal.

"There's a big difference in the physical way they (United) play, but it's not a matter of strength - it's how you use your body, which we have to learn". We wanted to win a European final.

"This is something you only learn when you are at the highest level".

To the press he lifted his index finger, as if to say: "I'm still the number one".

Speaking as co-hose of the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Wilkins said: "I wouldn't like to see him go to China".

"He was, of course, a tornado, when he arrived last season without pressure".

"Three trophies in one season and the Champions League". This is the kind of character I like. And I agree with Phil Neville, who told ESPNFC following the match that he thought the club should hold a victory parade in the cit in order to rejuvenate the citizens.

"If he stays next season I'd be very happy". It was a boring game. "I've played for two Premier League clubs and they're the only two Premier League clubs I'll play for".

"Sometimes I ask my assistants to help me on that because maybe they have a different profile to me".

"We don't want this in the world, we want a world of respect and I know we are just football players, but we have some audience so from here I just want to say to everyone to work together for a normal world".

Mourinho admitted that his first term at Man United was his "most hard season as a manager" and says, with three trophies under his belt, he will now take a deserved rest.

A two-time European champion with Porto and Inter Milan, Mourinho once declared he didn't want to win the Europa League. They have also become the fifth team to win each European competition at least once along with Ajax, Bayern Munich, Juventus and Chelsea.

Rooney is said to have offers from the MLS and China to quit Old Trafford.

"I feel that I am nobody. This trophy is for them". I always have to prove.

"That's the way I look at things". No manager won in Spain, Italy, England.

Financially, victory was worth £50m in Champions League TV and prize money next season, a £22m bonus from adidas plus £5.5m Europa League winners prize money.

Reminders of the attack were everywhere at Stockholms Friends Arena, from Uniteds black armbands to the chants of “Manchester!” from their fans, while Pogba, too, was grieving, following the recent death of his father.
