Manchester will pull together after Arena tragedy: Jose Mourinho

"I think if we can win - not just as a United fan but the whole of the city - it will be uplifting", said 40-year-old IT worker Haroon Latif, who flew in from Manchester for the game early Wednesday with his 9-year-old son, Haris.

"Of course, a final is always different to other games, but we played against some good teams in this campaign". "We are sure that, in the circumstances, you will all understand our position on this matter".

The news has shocked the world and has put Manchester United's clash with the Dutch giants into perspective.

The game in Sweden between Manchester United and Ajax will go ahead despite the deadly incident at the Manchester Arena on Monday night.

The attack took place at the end of an Ariana Grande concert in central Manchester.

Mkhitaryan, meanwhile, was happy to fulfil his teammates' prophecies with a goal in the final, after helping United reach the Stockholm showpiece with five Europa League strikes this term.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said he was "deeply saddened" by the "horrible terrorist attack".

Gab Marcotti describes the security measures for the Europa League and Champions League finals after Monday's terror attack.

Numerous squad took to social media to express their sympathy and solidarity after the attack. "My thoughts are with the families and friends of the victims".

The way things are now, it is up to each individual tournament to elect whether to invite players under such circumstances. The Russian, 30, was widely expected to be fast-tracked into the Grand Slam tournament which she has won twice before.

United greats used social media to show support for the northern city of Manchester.

Referring to the cup win, which earns United a place in the Champions League next season, Pogba, who opened the scoring before Henrikh Mkhitaryan doubled the lead, added: "We knew we were going to play in the Europa League and the goal was to win the Europa League".

In-form striker Marcus Rashford has been the spearhead of United's charge to the final and will take up that mantle once more, at the expense of captain Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial.

The United players held their own minute's silence at their Carrington training ground, standing in a circle with their heads bowed.
