We played for the people who died, says Pogba

Rooney has battled injuries on and off over the season and found his playing time limited under Jose Mourinho.

Man United finished the Premier League campaign in sixth, they drew far too many games, while they ended the year 24 points behind leaders Chelsea.

"I think a younger me would have been a lot more frustrated", said Rooney of his limited playing time under Jose Mourinho at United.

The city has come together as one this week with United and City together pledging £1m to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, along with individual £100,000 contributions from Wayne Rooney and Yaya Toure. I think I understand what is right and what is needed for the club, and I respect that.

After United's Europa League win on Wednesday, Rooney said, "There's lots of offers on the table, both in England and overseas, and really that's what I have to decide on".

And now he is determined to escape football at least for a few weeks as he recharges his batteries following a tough first year in charge of United.

The tenures of David Moyes (10 months) and Louis van Gaal (two years) set United back, and are blots in its illustrious recent history.

Manchester United's Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored a goal in each half as their team comfortably outclassed Ajax Amsterdam to win an emotional Europa League final 2-0 and qualify for the group stages of the Champions League.

Manchester United has won all trophies.

"We preferred to reach the Champions League this way than finish fourth, third or second", he continued.

With rumours surely to intensify surrounding Antoine Griezmann and Manchester United, the FC panel talk what the striker will bring to Old Trafford.

"Of course, Champions League is bigger than Europa League, but that is the last trophy and that is when the feelings are under the skin and obviously it is a fantastic feeling for the team".
