Manchester United and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were crowned Europa League Champions at the Friends Arena in Stockholm on May 24.
Winning this trophy means a lot for Man U. It nearly guarentees that Antoine Griezmann will make the switch from Atletico Madrid to United, and it is also enough to likely keep Swedish beast Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who said that he would probably leave the club if they didn't make the Champions League.

The Italian side won all three trophies in the space of nine seasons in the 1970s and 80s.

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney claims he has "lots of offers" and is considering his future.
French midfielder Paul Pogba, who scored United's first goal, dedicated the triumph to the victims, saying: "We played for the people who died".
