Mourinho defiant as United bid to reach Champions League
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho led a chorus of defiance as his side prepare for Wednesday’s Europa League final with Ajax against the backdrop of Monday’s terror attack in their home city.
United’s players held a minute’s silence at the Carrington training base, paying tribute to the 22 people who lost their lives at the Manchester Arena, before heading to Stockholm on Tuesday.
Victory would seal Champions League qualification for United.
I know, even during my short time here, that the people of Manchester will pull together as one.”
United will be without suspended defender Eric Bailly for the clash, while Mourinho has confirmed that Sergio Romero will keep his place in goal ahead of David de Gea.
