Though only placing sixth after the 2016/17 Premier League season, Manchester United went on to defeat Ajax in the Europa League final giving José Mourinho a reason to celebrate. Despite some struggles and a few controversies — like exiling German superstar Bastian Schweinsteiger — Mourinho was able to guide the Red Devils into the Champions League once again while winning two trophies along the way.
During the match, Man U were able to seal the victory over the Dutch club — though heavy hitters such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Luke Shaw were injured — with goals from Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. The UEFA Cup, also known as the Coupe UEFA, is the only trophy the Devils have never won before. Check out the euphoric scenes above.
