Zlatan Ibrahimovic coy on Manchester United future

The match was played just two days after Monday's atrocities in Manchester in which 22 people were killed and 59 injured as a result of an attack by a suicide bomber following an Ariana Grande concert.

Fast forward four years, and the oft-criticized Europa League has saved his first season at Unite, and opened up exciting new possibilities in the process.

There were songs and cheers in Manchester along with a somber undercurrent because, as one man told the BBC, "I think everyone's thinking about the same things". We want peace in the world.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany had posted a message on Twitter earlier saying they "stand shoulder to shoulder" with the victims and praising the "true spirit" of the city.

"It was hard to train yesterday but the manager told us is that the only thing we could do is win this for them".

"We just came to do our job and the boys were fantastic because they blocked (it out), they put a wall in front of their eyes and they stay isolated from everything".

The game was preceded by a minute's silence, which was interrupted by applause from both sets of fans, and United's players wore black armbands.

"I agree with Uefa's decision to play the match now".

"When we won the Champions League we paraded the trophy in the city centre, ending in the Arena and celebrated there".

"We came without the happiness we should bring with us, because when you come for these big matches you come happy, you come proud".

But who can they face next season - and what does their success mean for the other Premier League clubs? We were really, really sad because you think of life and football - you have no choice.

Herrera's compatriot Mata said Monday's shocking events in Manchester gave the win in Stockholm extra significance.

Victory enabled United to complete a sweep of European trophies.

Mourinho held up three fingers at the final whistle, one for each trophy won this season after United followed up their Community Shield win in August with the EFL Cup and now the Europa League crowns. "We tried to focus on the win and lift the trophy and try to lift the spirit of the town".

Mourinho, meanwhile, made no apologies for his tactics, remarking: "There are lots of poets in football but poets don't win many titles".

Ibrahimovic, 35, scored 28 goals in all competitions for United this season, defying critics who suggested he would struggle in England.
