Mourinho: Griezmann? Ask Ed Woodward

"We have won a trophy the club has never won so we are really happy", said Mata.

You have to ask Ed Woodward.

The trait seeped out of the squad under David Moyes and Louis van Gaal with proven winners being phased out.

Is this how Manchester United could look with Antoine Griezmann?

Where United should be, given its history, prestige, and wealth.

"But I don't care about football for now".

Yet, in the back of his mind, he will surely be plotting forensically for next season.

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

But if Mourinho can instil a ruthless streak thanks to two or three shrewd signings, Manchester United could be destined for short-term success. Another summer of heavy spending is likely.

"If you are dominant in the air you go long". That will have to change.

"I think United gave the city a lift and I think that was what it was about". Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be out of contract next season with Everton's Romelu Lukaku named as his possible successor.

Wayne Rooney has been a constant source of speculation of late after not seeing the amount of game-time he desired at Manchester Under under Jose Mourinho in 2016/17. He has now won the tournament twice, having led Porto to glory in the Uefa Cup - as the Europa League was previously called - in 2003.

Since then, a major stumbling block has been removed by United securing the return of Champions League football.

While Tottenham finished second in the Premier League this season, United ended up sixth in the table.

The England global has again struggled with various niggles this term, twice being called out by Mourinho who questioned whether he was giving his all for the side. It made this victory, in a largely forgettable match, one to remember.

It was billed as a clash between the efficiency of Mourinho's United against the swagger and youthful exuberance of Ajax.

He told Sky Sports News HQ: "First of all Manchester is a working class city and it has fantastic people there. But a very, very good season".
