Ajax Amsterdam coach Peter Bosz was disappointed by his team's performance in their 2-0 defeat by Manchester United in Wednesday's Europa League final, but vowed to learn from United's physical display and come back stronger.

United won the EFL Cup and the Europa League in Jose Mourinho's first season in charge but the club had been expected to be involved in the chase for the Premier League title.

United finished 24 points behind champions Chelsea, with a league-high 15 draws.

Manchester United star Wayne Rooney has donated £100,000 to the families of those who lost their lives in the Manchester terror attack.

"(The agents) don't have my number", Mourinho told BT Sport.

Manchester City, Inter and Real Madrid have all been linked with Silva and there has also been talk that Manchester United are in advanced negotiations to sign him from Monaco in the summer. I think I understand what is right and what is needed for the club, and I respect that.

Paul Pogba dedicated Manchester United's Europa League title triumph to the 22 people killed in Monday's attack in Manchester, defiantly saying: "We played for the people who died".

"To me it is the most important trophy of my career because it is the last (most recent) - that is how I look at things", he said.

"I said last time (in March) that he was a bit short of matches ― he's had some matches now but we've got players that have done really, really well for us in Adam Lallana and Dele Alli".

And the 54-year-old claimed the market is now out of his hands as he takes a break following a gruelling first season at Old Trafford. He is one of five English players who United are now probably leaving behind.

"I will ask UEFA and Federation Internationale de Football Association if they will not play any finals on this date", he said with a wry smile.
