Manchester United on Wednesday night in Stockholm, Sweden, won their first Europa League title as they beat Ajax Amsterdam 2-0.
Goals from Paul Pogba and then another from Henrikh Mkhitaryan fired United to glory in Sweden and also qualification for the UEFA Champions League.
The victory means that United join Ajax in a select group of just three other clubs to have won every major European trophy in their history, adding their first Europa League crown to their three Champions League titles and one Cup Winners’ Cup.
This is the second trophy Jose Mourinho is winning in his first season as Manchester United coach.
The Portuguese gaffer had earlier in the season won the League Cup.
