Manchester United struggle to clear their minds before Europa League final | Daniel Taylor

It will not be easy for José Mourinho and his players to adopt a ‘business as usual’ approach after Monday’s atrocity, and the mood in Stockholm feels subdued

In happier times it was the Manchester Arena where Sir Alex Ferguson and his players ended up on that sunny day, 18 years ago this week, when they brought the European Cup back to the city for the first time since the 1960s.

They reckon there were upwards of 750,000 people to welcome Manchester United back from Barcelona that day. They hung off lamp-posts and balconies and scaffolding and spires, and there has never been another homecoming quite like it on the city’s streets.

Ander Herrera: the Spanish scrapper who gives Manchester United a feisty edge | Paul Wilson

Once thought to be too nice to be a destructive force in midfield, the 27-year-old has thrived this season under José Mourinho and aims to drive United to victory over Ajax in the Europa League final

Ander Herrera has already played in one Europa League final but if that makes him more experienced than many of his Manchester United team-mates it is only because his present club have rarely given Uefa’s second-string competition their full attention. The midfielder reached the 2012 final in Bucharest with Athletic Bilbao, only to be beaten 3-0 by an Atlético Madrid side already beginning to respond to the newly arrived Diego Simeone.

Bilbao put out Manchester United on the way to the final, along with Schalke and Sporting Lisbon, but when they came across Radamel Falcao and a well-organised Atlético they were out of their depth. “Atlético were better than us,” Herrera said. “They were more experienced and they managed the game well.”
