Manchester United have won the 2016/2017 Uefa Europa League after defeating Ajax 2-0.

Mourinho's side needed a win to book a place in next season's UEFA champions league after a lacklustre English Premier League campaign plagued with draws.

A deflected first half goal from the £89m man Paul Pogba put United in front and this was followed by a superb second half finish from Henrik Mhkitaryan to put Mourinho's men 2-0 up against a youthful Ajax side.

In what seemed like a disappointing season, Mourinho put all his eggs in one basket to ensure a spot in the UEFA Champions league next season.

This win also means Mourinho has guided Manchester United to their first triumph in the UEFA Europa competition.
