Mata praises ruthless Mourinho as finals streak continues

Mata praises ruthless Mourinho as finals streak continues

The Red Devils won the Europa League trophy without injured Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Wednesday night thanks to Manchester United's 2-0 win against Eredivisie giants Ajax.

Substituted at half-time on his full United debut, in a 2-1 loss at home to Manchester City in September, the former Borussia Dortmund star has bounced back to become a firm fan favourite at Old Trafford.

Pogba was satisfied with the victory, saying: "We played to win".

"These things are awful all over the world, in London and in Paris", added the French worldwide, who was also playing at the Stade de France on the night of the November 2015 Paris terror attacks.

Jose Mourinho has won all four of his European finals as a manager, winning the 2003 Uefa Cup and 2004 Champions League with Porto, as well as the 2010 Champions League with Inter Milan. "We would not think twice". Maybe this victory will bring some happiness to Manchester, I don't know.

"Now it's up to him and the owners", Mourinho said.

It secured an automatic spot in next season's Champions League group stage, meaning United are back with the big boys of European soccer.

This means that Manchester United also returned to the top of the Deloitte Money League after finishing third the previous year.

Analysts are expecting EPS growth rates to be at 79.20% this quarter and EPS estimate for next year reflect a 62.01% growth rate. Shellback Capital Lp decreased Amazon Com Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) stake by 26,747 shares to 13,253 valued at $9.94 million in 2016Q4.

Peter Bosz's effervescent team caused United some uncomfortable moments, but without ever threatening to pull off an upset. In defender Matthijs de Ligt, aged 17 and 285 days, they also had the youngest player to feature in a European final.

"I work every day with great players, with great staff, at a great club and I'm happy to be here and try to give everything for this club".

"I think I understand what's right and what's needed for the club, and I respect that".

Carrick is United's second-longest serving player behind Wayne Rooney, whose own future is shrouded in uncertainty.

Pogba put a volley fractionally wide in the first minute and in the 18th minute he found the target, albeit with a helping hand.

Fellaini laid the ball off to Pogba at the edge of the area, and the France midfielder allowed it to run across him before sending in a low left-footed shot that struck Davinson Sanchez's outstretched leg, looped up, and span into the net past wrong-footed goalkeeper Andre Onana.

It was the biggest return yet on United's world-record £89.3 million ($115.8 million, 103.2 million euros) investment in Pogba, who celebrated by pointing to the sky.

"We wanted to do it right from the start of the competition".
