"These things are bad all over the world, in London and in Paris".

Mourinho stressed that his team were able to block from their minds Monday's attack in Manchester and focus on their biggest game of the season.

This trophy is for you, #MANCHESTER.????❤️. "I think I have to make a decision in terms of a football decision, and that's what I'll do, I'll do that the next few weeks with my family while I'm away and as soon as I know what's going on I'm sure you will".

"We felt the suffering and the sadness of the city of Manchester and we tried to give this trophy for them, for the whole city".

Just before the corner came in from which United scored from, the Spaniard can be seen pleaded with Mkhitaryan to swap places with him and get in and around the six-yard box.

I try to make my players respect the opponents' strengths and also to understand their weaknesses.

The win preserved Mourinho's ideal record in major European finals, adding to his 2003 UEFA Cup victory with FC Porto, and his Champions League triumphs with the same club in 2004 and Inter Milan in 2010.

The game, meanwhile, pitted the youngest starting XI in the history of European finals (with an average age of just 22 years and 282 days) against one of the most expensive teams ever assembled.

"Of course you want to play, you want to be on the pitch, of course".

"If Juventus win the Champions League, I am very happy, very happy", he told Sky Italia.

'We have some code between us, they knew it.

United's style in winning the trophy has been questioned, with Ajax head coach Peter Bosz branding it a "boring" final, but Mourinho defended his club's style of play. In the first half of 18 minutes, Jose Mourinho's team got the result.

From Marouane Fellaini's lay-off, the French midfielder let fly with a left-foot shot that flicked off Davinson Sanchez's left foot and looped past Ajax's helplessly wrong-footed goalkeeper Andre Onana. A big club like United should be plying its trade in the biggest stage of the game, and they have two routes to that goal.

Moments later, Antonio Valencia stung Onana's palms after a raid down the United right. The Italian side won all three trophies in the space of nine seasons in the 1970s and 80s.
