"I dedicate this trophy to my family, to Manchester and to all Armenians", Manchester United midfielder and Armenian National Football Team captain Henrikh Mkhitaryan noted on Facebook after his team secured a victory against Ajax and won the UEFA Europa League.

Manchester United completed their set of trophies by claiming Europe's secondary competition on Wednesday in a comfortable final against Ajax.

"You know, it is really hard", the Portuguese said of the tragic backdrop. We want peace in the world and respect.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has not ruled out Wayne Rooney staying at the club, saying the striker is "a very important player for us".

"If we could, we would obviously change the people's lives for this cup, immediately", Mourinho said. Does this cup make the city of Manchester a little bit happier?

"I don't want to see any global friendlies, I am selfish". In addition he won four tackles, completed three take-ons and also made two clearances as United won the Europa League for the first time in their history.

"You don't win a European trophy every day - I lost in the Europa League final five years ago [with Athletic Bilbao]". It's steered United to two major trophies this season and a spot in the Champions League.

Defeated Europa League finalists Ajax will be among the third seeds in the Champions League draw, where there will be joined by Tottenham and Liverpool, if Jurgen Klopp's side come through their qualifying tie. "There are lots of poets in football, the poets don't win many titles, we knew where they were better than us, and us better than them", he said. "I didn't see the Ajax team I'm used to, pressing and competing for first balls". "But we got it all". Brandished as boring by some, perceived as pragmatic by others, Mourinho's defensive football divides opinion, but whatever you think of it, you can't argue with the facts.
