Some say we had a bad season but the prize is here.

In an emotional match, United beat Ajax two-nil in Stockholm which qualifies the Red Devils for next year's Champions League.

Less than 48 hours before kick-off against Ajax in Sweden, an explosion at the end of Ariana Grande's concert at Manchester Arena killed 22 people and injured many more.

"We won for Manchester, we worked for them, for the country", midfield star Paul Pogba said after the game. "It was very sombre flying [to Stockholm] over with the directors - it was all we were talking about". "We worked hard and we'll enjoy it now".

"Tonight was more important than sport", ex-United player Beckham said. I'm happy that I scored here today in the final because everyone was saying, "You're going to score in the final" and after the last game against Celta Vigo I was dreaming about scoring in the final and I did.

"It's hard to come from behind against a well organised team, the second half we were barely out of the dressing room", he added. Both teams wore black armbands for the match in another mark of respect and both sets of fans came together, mingling happily outside the stadium and in the city centre before the match. 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 hard time.

However, they huge points boost received by their Europa League win has propelled them up the ranking table, which may be crucial when their fate in the competition is revealed in August.

"This happened in Manchester but everywhere we need to have a united world to fight for peace and no more attacks and deaths please. This trophy is for them".
