Manchester will pull together as one, says Mourinho

Manchester will pull together as one, says Mourinho

"On behalf of the players, staff and everyone at Ajax, we would like to express our sympathy with the victims that unfortunately fell", he said.

"The feeling that prevails is that the final doesn't have the glow it should have". It's a sad day for the great city of Manchester. "It's awful. My heartfelt sympathies".

Mourinho's squad will travel to Sweden later on Wednesday but have been allowed to forego their pre-match media duties in light of the incident, with UEFA accepting a request from the club.

It said security arrangements had already been beefed up following last month's truck attack in the Swedish capital, which claimed five lives and injured around 15 people.

European governing body UEFA said it had "no specific intelligence" suggesting the final would be targeted by attacks.

But the head coach says it would not be normal if his side did not feel the nerves given the scale of the match.

"That's not up to us. I am just a coach", added Bosz.

"People will say we've not had a good season, but would you rather finish second and win nothing, or win two cups and be in the Champions League?".

"I'm here for the game".

"It's bad what happened there. But it's for other people to decide that".

A number of teenagers could feature for the Amsterdam club and Bosz said: 'I would send my players directly to the doctor if they weren't nervous, especially because it's their first final. "Her name is Ariana Grande".

Bosz has spoken to his players about an incident that has hit home with numerous Ajax players, given their wives and children recently went to see American pop star Grande in Amsterdam.

"If it can happen in Manchester it can happen anywhere".

"From Barcelona, all our support and solidarity for the victims and relatives of the attack in Manchester", said a message from the Catalan club.

The attack took place at the end of an Ariana Grande concert in central Manchester late Monday. My wife and my child were there. "It's so close. It's bad, it's awful", he said. City captain Vincent Kompany tweeted, "I would like to express my deepest condolences to the families of the victims".

"We've got a job to do tomorrow, no question about that, and that hasn't been changed but I think what happened last night really put things into perspective".
