United's Europa league win gave Manchester a lift, says Ferguson


Bastian Schweinsteiger has a reward awaiting him now that Manchester United has won the Europa League tournament this season.

And after the victory, Mourinho spoke with Sir Alex Ferguson who was watching from the stands.

David Moyes was a rabbit caught in headlights, Louis van Gaal an old dog with no new tricks.

Yeah, of course, I think that's where this club belongs, where it needs to be, and I certainly believe they've got the right man to lead them to that.

Where United should be, given its history, prestige, and wealth. "I am so happy to see the boys with the crutches with the trophy and now I am on holiday", he said.

Yet, in the back of his mind, he will surely be plotting forensically for next season. Listen, I don't want to get into too much about it but it's something that I'm sure the right people will be looking at and trying to take the right actions. "So now it's up to him and the owners".

United has splashed out more than $500 million on signings in the transfer market in the past three offseasons.

There are also likely to be outgoings this summer.

Pogba, who rejoined the 20-times English champions last summer from Juventus for 89 million pounds (115.43 million USA dollars), fired United ahead in the 18th minute in Stockholm helped by a massive deflection off Colombian defender Davinson Sanchez. That will have to change.

Rain chances increasing for the late week

French President-elect Macron gears up for challenges ahead
That means many of them may be burdened by the handicap of being largely unknown to voters in constituencies they compete for. On May 7, Macron was elected French president, taking around 65 percent of the vote to Le Pen's 35 percent.

Qualcomm sues four Apple contract manufacturers
In a new move in the on-going dispute between Apple and Qualcomm , the chip supplier has sued four iPhone suppliers directly. Qualcomm has filed a breach of contract complaint against Foxconn, Pegatron, Wistron , and Compal , MacRumors reported .

Cheers echoed around the arena as the club's captain Wayne Rooney, who came on as a second-half substitute, lifted the club's latest trophy aloft.

Ajax were appearing in their first continental showpiece match since the 1996 Champions League decider and fielded a team with an average age of 22 years and 282 days - the youngest to have ever started a major European final.

He has been out since last month after he sustained a serious knee injury in the quarterfinal match against Anderlecht. Ibrahimovic will be out of contract in a few weeks. United was the third English victor in that time, after Liverpool in 2001 and Chelsea in 2013.

Under Mourinho, United should be feared once again.

"So if I say something about my finals - not just European finals but other finals - where I won some and lost some, something that is always present on my teams is we are always very humble".

And that's United under Mourinho.

"For me, it is the most important trophy of my career because it is the last", Mourinho said, having added to this season's Community Shield and EFL Cup successes.

"It was a very hard week for a lot of us and for the city of Manchester and we tried to win for all the people who have suffered". "He's finished the season a bit better and I'm sure he'll take that into next year".
