Good night everyone

Not the sort of post-match interview Ander Herrera would have imagined having to give just a few short days ago.

It's been a hugely eventful and emotional week in Manchester, and in Stockholm, but it ends with Manchester United back in the Champions League and with another trophy back in their cabinet.

Thanks as ever for all of your company. Good night one and all.

'No more deaths, please'

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera: "I want to dedicate this trophy to the victims. This is just football and what happened two days ago was horrible.

"We want peace in the world, a normal world with respect. We are just football players but we have an audience so we just want to see everyone work together for a normal world. This happened in Manchester but everywhere we want to see a united world and fight for peace, respect in the world - no more attack and no more deaths please."

'United need five'

Robbie Savage

Ex-Leicester City & Wales midfielder in Stockholm

“I think the club needs at least four or five players. If David De Gea goes then you need a new keeper, even though Romero has done nothing wrong.

"You need a full back and a centre-back to go alongside Bailly, who has been brilliant this season.

"If Carrick goes you need another creative midfielder and if Zlatan Ibrahimovic goes then you need a striker.

"You wonder if Marcus Rashford is good enough to be the number nine, he is a huge talent but does he score enough goals? I think you need another striker for him to play with."

It's been a wonderful evening. We are all emotionally drained and our hearts and prayers remain with the people back home.

'The club has my shopping list'

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United

More from Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho: "Ed Woodward has my list, what I want, what I would like for more than two months. So now it's up to him and the owners. But I don't care about football for now.

"Wayne Rooney was ready to play, he was a big option. But I didn't need to attack at 2-0. I told him yesterday that he could be the key man but he can perfectly be here next season. He is a very important player for us. If he stays next season I'd be very happy."

'Enough is enough - I am on holiday'

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho: "We totally deserved the win. I am so happy to see the boys with the crutches with the trophy and now I am on holiday. I don't want to see any international friendlies, I am selfish. I can't do it.

"For me, enough is enough. It has been a very hard last few months, we were short of numbers.

"Three trophies in one season and the Champions League. I am very happy in my most difficult season as a manager."

'Poets don't win titles'

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho: "It is the end of a very difficult season. But a very very good season.

"We preferred to reach the Champions League this way than finish fourth, third or second. We got the objective, we are back in the Champions League by winning a title, an important title. The club now has every title in world football. We fought hard for this since the beginning.

"We always thought that we could win the Europa League and we are very happy. We played intelligently, we did it in a comfortable way. We were much stronger than them.

"If you are dominant in the air you go long. There are lots of poets in football but poets don't win many titles. We knew where we were better than them and we exploited their weaknesses."

'We can do a lot better'

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United

Davy Klaassen, Ajax captain: "Today we were just not good enough. We can do a lot better, and that is annoying. In the end two lucky moments make the difference."

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United

News conferences need more managers like Peter Bosz...

'It was a boring game'

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United

Ajax coach Peter Bosz: "I think it was a boring game, no chances from both sides. We were not good enough and congratulations to Manchester United.

"We will learn a lot from this and if we keep this side together we will be stronger next year."

At the end of the game, Jose Mourinho literally turned around to the press box and told them, "I am still the number one. Do NOT doubt me."

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United

The focus will very quickly switch to summer transfer business for Manchester United. Who do they need? What do they need?

Who can they get?

'Only one winner'

Paul Pogba is a Manchester United supporter. He wanted to come back because this is the club that helped him become the player he is today.

I feel absolutely drained. It has been such an emotional week. There was only going to be one winner tonight. It HAD to be Manchester United.

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United

I mean, look at him!

I can't get over the reaction from Jose Mourinho to winning tonight. That victory has taken years off him. He's still bounding around the pitch with the trophy.

He's unrecognisable!

'More important than sport'

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United

Former Manchester United midfielder David Beckham: "Tonight was more important than sport... Yes a big night for Manchester United but an even bigger night for the city and for our country .... At a time when we are grieving for the families that have lost loved ones we have a sport that has bought a little happiness at a difficult time..."

On a horrendous day for families deeply hurt by the events at Manchester last night, a genuine touch of empathy and class from Manchester City. Well done Jose and United!

Not exactly Charlton, Best, Styles, Dunne, Kidd, etc. but we'll take it!

The name of Jose Mourinho is still being sung loud and proud inside the Friends Arena. Here's a question though - are they any closer to a title challenge?

Marouane Fellaini was absolutely immense tonight. He took the fight to this Ajax team. He has had some criticism but has had to have courage to make his Manchester United career what it is.

'Trophy for Manchester' - Mata

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata speaking to BT Sport: "We have won a trophy the club has never won so we are really happy. It means a lot as it is my first European trophy with United and after what happened yesterday it is nice to bring a trophy back for Manchester.

"It has been a really difficult week in the city of Manchester and we are happy to win for all the people that have suffered."

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United

The Premier League will have five teams in the Champions League next season then.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic moves over to pose in front of a banner which promises him an illicit liasion with someondy's better half is he decides to stay.

Not with his knee, I hope.

'A long, hard difficult season'

It's been a long hard, difficult season and under really difficult circumstances, they have produced a performance.

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United

If you ever thought that the Europa League didn't matter - check out these scenes. Jose Mourinho is unrecognisable, the energy of a 18-month-old labrador!

He's bouncing up and down, showing four fingers for four European trophies, as Wayne Rooney lifts the trophy high!

United are winners - and they are in the Champions League.

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United

Jose Mourinho is up first and has the medal around his neck before landing a kiss on the trophy. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, along with the other injured players are up next.

They are all taking selfies with the trophy now. That will anger a lot of people I'm sure...

Jose Mourinho has won four out of four European finals now.

Ajax come off the stage and form a guard of honour for the winners. Wayne Rooney looks to have the trophy lifting job under wraps.

'Nobody can talk' - Pogba

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United

Paul Pogba speaking to BT Sport: "We did it. We are very proud. Nobody can talk. They said we had a bad season but we have three trophies (including Community Shield)."

"The start was important and after the goals we controlled the game. Great performance from everybody in the team."

(On the attacks in Manchester)

"These things are terrible all over the world, in London and in Paris. We went out focused to win and we won for Manchester and the country."

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United

Ajax players and staff step forwards to take their silverware. A great effort to get to the final but they never really featured tonight. There will be some regrets from this young group I'm sure.

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United

The temporary stage has been constructed on the Stockholm pitch, the huge trophy has been engraved and is placed on the podium.

It looks like Ajax will be up first for their losers' medals.

'What a season'

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United

Phil Neville

Former Manchester United defender on Radio 5 live

It's a fantastic moment. Jose Mourinho has waited nine months for this moment. What a season he has produced here - two trophies and Champions League football.

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United

Congratulations to @ManUtd on winning the @EuropaLeague. 2 trophies and a Champions League place. He's a winner is Jose Mourinho.

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United

The Ajax team are in a sombre huddle - their time may come again if Peter Bosz can keep the core of this group together. That's a big 'if' I'd guess though.

Adesanya Gabriel: Say what you will about Jose Mourinho, he is a winner. No one manages a final quite like him. It was always under control.

Oliver Cook: Odd season for United. Won 3 out 5 available trophies and qualified for Champions League, yet haven't been impressive.

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United

We are seeing a really different side to Jose Mourinho here. He still loves winning after all. He goes to the fans and pumps his fists out, before hugging a shirtless Paul Pogba.

Pogba is delighted. He didn't sign up to play in the Europa League and now, next season, he won't after.
