Jose Mourinho: Manchester will pull together after bomb attack

Manchester United will look to win the Europa League and book their place in the Champions League next season when they take on Ajax in Stockholm tomorrow night.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who now plays for Real Madrid, posted on his Twitter account a British flag with "MANCHESTER" written across the red central stripe.

Fosu-Mensah's appearance in the final Premier League game of the season was his 11th game of the campaign.

As such, Spanish football expert Guillem Balague has been giving his views on Griezmann's future ahead of the Europa League final.

Manchester United's Juan Mata celebrates after scoring in the Europa League Round-of-16 second leg match against FK Rostov at Old Trafford, Manchester in March.

"I feel good", Fosu-Mensah said.


"All the young players in Ajax are blessed", said Bosz, who will be without suspended centre-back Nick Viergever.

"I think we only have a chance to beat Manchester if we play our own game. We are dealing with two different styles and we will see which style of playing comes out on top". Ajax approach the game with none of the cloying pressure that United must contend with.

Man United plays Ajax on Wednesday in Stockholm, and security was already intensified following a deadly truck attack in the Swedish capital last month.

The Stockholm showdown represent United's only hope of qualifying for next season's Champions League - and landing Antoine Griezmann - but the England pair seem as relaxed as ever in the lead-up to kick-off.

Talk about United's key players ahead of a final that means so much to the English club, and many would say Marcus Rashford or Paul Pogba or Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The last time Ajax saw the final of this competition was in 1992, when it was the UEFA Cup.


But the former Sweden worldwide has been a huge hit for Jose Mourinho, scoring 28 goals across all competitions to fire them to EFL Cup glory and to the brink of a first European trophy in nine years.

Two days after a devastating terrorist attack in Manchester, the city's legendary team, Manchester United, will attempt to provide some sort of useful distraction for the stricken city when they face Dutch giants AFC Ajax in the 2017 UEFA Europa League Final which will live stream from Sweden on Wednesday.

Still, the Premier League side are still considered to be the favourites to win Wednesday's game against Ajax, according to the bookies.

"The importance of it is just beyond anything else because it will set the club up going forward to bring in the best players and that's something they need to do".

The only way to achieve that now is by winning the Europa League, which has become a more attractive competition since 2015 when the rules changed to offer the victor an automatic spot in the group stage of the Champions League.

"Instead of looking at Manchester, I am rather looking at my team", Bosz said.


"Words don't really do justice for how we all feel", he said.
