Paul Merson offers simple advice to Jose Mourinho about Man United signings

Rita Gibson | 24 May, 2017, 17:10

"We try not to change what we did before. But there is a shadow hanging over this final".

"I'd like to say something about what happened in Manchester", he said.

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.

Mourinho said the victims and their families were in "our minds and our hearts" and that "we can not fly with the happiness that we always have before a big game".

United captain Wayne Rooney described the news as "devastating", while executive vice-chaiman Ed Woodward said everyone at the club was "numb". "Success on the pitch really is nothing compared to the pain and suffering that's going on back home".

Manchester has been through travesties before and come out of the other side a stronger, more together city.

The UEFA statement added "there is now no specific intelligence which might suggest that any of the UEFA Europa League Final activities in Stockholm may be the target of attacks.' London's metropolitan police said that extra armed officers would be deployed for the FA Cup final between Arsenal and Chelsea at Wembley and the English Premiership rugby union final between Exeter and Wasps at Twickenham".

British Prime Minister raises country's threat level
The terror threat level has been raised to its highest level of "critical", meaning further attacks may be imminent, she said . USA security sources, citing British intelligence officials, said Abedi was born in Manchester to parents of Libyan origin.

He sacrificed the fight for a fourth-placed finish in the Premier League in the final weeks of the season to concentrate on a cup. UEFA said it has no "specific intelligence" that the final featuring Manchester United will be a target.

With Marcos Rojo injured and Eric Bailly suspended, United are without their two best central defenders this season and Mourinho clearly isn't comfortable with his alternatives.

Ajax, four-time European champions, have reached their first European final since a 4-2 loss on penalties to Juventus in the 1995-96 Champions League. It is also the first time in more than two decades that Ajax have made it to the summit clash of a European tournament.

"What happened in Manchester is something that we all feel at Ajax", Bosz said.

"The young players are blessed because a lot of those players are still working at Ajax", he explained. We have Edwin van der Sar and Marc Overmars, our CEOs. I know a couple of players and I speak to them.

"We have our own way of playing developed this season, which I always call the Ajax way of playing".

It is hard to think of anything as trivial as football - and it does become trivial when you think of what happened at the Manchester Arena - when your community has just been hit by such a tragedy, but as professionals, that is exactly what the Manchester United players will need to do.
