Two goals from Paul Pogba and Henrik Mkhitaryan were enough for Manchester United to defeat Ajax and clinch the Europa League trophy on Wednesday night.
The Jose Mourinho’s men, though poor in possession in the game, put their experience into play over the youthful team from Netherlands.
Pogba put the Red Devils ahead into the 18th minute before Mkhitaryan scored the second goal for United three minutes into the second half of the match.
The win gives the team from England a spot in next season’s Champions’ League group stage, despite finishing sixth in the just concluded English Premier League.
Also, the ride over Ajax comes days after a terror attack at the Manchester Arena last weekend, where over 20 persons were killed.
The Europa League win had been Mourinho’s target since the beginning of the season, especially when he lost out in the race to top four in the local league.
