The 2-0 victory over Dutch outfit, Ajax, sealed a third title for Jose Mourinho’s first season in charge of the Old Trafford side.
Success in this cup, means entry into next season’s Champions League, something unobtainable this year, due to United finishing 6th in the Premier League.
Goals on the night from an emotional Paul Pogba, United’s biggest signing’s this season, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan meant another trophy alongside the League Cup and Charity Shield.
The win, after events in Manchester 48 hours earlier, will ease the pain, manager Mourinho said after. “Does this cup make the city of Manchester a bit happier? Maybe. But we just come to do our job. We come without the happiness that we should bring with us because when you come for these big matches, you go happy, you go proud and we didn’t. We just came to do our job,” he told the BBC after.
Afterwards, the official Manchester United twitter – @ManUtd – account had a picture of the winning squad in Sweden with the caption below them – ‘For Manchester.’
