Manchester victims in United's 'minds and hearts', says Mourinho

Rita Gibson | 24 May, 2017, 17:09

Ajax have a notorious hooligan element, known as the F-Side, and in 2012 there were clashes at Old Trafford before a Champions League game between the team, after which 76 Ajax supporters were arrested.

What happened in Manchester is something that we all feel at Ajax.

"It's all we were talking about, to be honest", club chairman Ed Woodward said.

Asked what impact it has had on Manchester United's preparations, he added: "We've got a job to do tomorrow, no question about that, and that hasn't been changed".

Their arch-rivals said: "Real Madrid C.F. expresses its deepest dismay at the attack committed in Manchester and wants to convey its solidarity with the victims and their families and friends".

The players at Carrington and Mourinho were, understandably, deeply affected by the Manchester Arena attacks, with the manager even cancelling his pre-match press conference. "It takes away some of the sparkle of what will happen tomorrow".

"Success on the pitch really is nothing compared to the pain and suffering going on back home, that is really where our thoughts are at this point in time".

We also saw General Flynn, Trump's former national security advisor, invoke the Fifth Amendment in relationship to some requested documents.

The head of security at the Swedish Football Association, that co-organises Wednesday's UEFA Europa League final, Martin Fredman, said security was already on high alert after Sweden suffered an attack in April when a truck drove into a crowd killing five people.

Manchester United will be hoping to provide a moment of respite from the harrowing time their city is enduring when they play in the Europa League final in Stockholm on Thursday morning.

On paper, Manchester United are favorite to win this title considering their experience in European competition, but Ajax coach Peter Bosz is optimistic that his young side can defeat the Red Devils.

We have to win this trophy and it's important for next season to be in the Champions League.

"Of course we got to a final with a certain way of playing, which is our forte", Bosz said. I have a three-month old (child) now and it hits harder when you know children are involved. If we can play as strongly as we can, we'll show this way of playing to Manchester.

The Holland Under 21 global said: 'I'm still young and I'm still learning a lot.
