Emotions Guide Manchester United To Europa League Glory As Pogba Stars In Win
The Red Devils were favorites for the clash, but Ajax had shown tremendous resilient to reach the final – but ultimately Jose Mourinho’s masterclass was too much for the Dutch giants.
United gained the lead in the 18th minute when Paul Pogba found the net in the 18th minute, but Ajax did try to make a comeback shortly after by winning a corner on the left, but Sanchez failed to make amends for the United goal.
Despite making number of efforts in the latter part of the first-half the Eredivisie side never really threatened United’s defense as they failed to make a come-back.
In the second-half Henrikh Mkhitaryan doubled the Red Devils lead just three minutes after the game restarted.
Bertrand Traore did bundle his way through a series of challenge, and was eventually poked in by Klaassen, but Smalling nudged the ball behind for a corner.
That was the last that the Dutch side came close to a come back as Mourinho made tactical substitutions to seal a brilliant win to end the season on a winning note and also qualifying for next seasons Champions League.
