After a nervy, nail-biting, watch-kissing semifinal saw José Mourinho's side finally prove to Celta Vigo striker John Guidetti that was still red, nobody can say the Europa League doesn't matter anymore. They're a young team, a strong team, they finished the league this weekend and will have 12 days to recover. I think the referee was very good.
"I don't want the players to feel like that. But over the two games I think our qualification was deserved". Like winning a trophy, like having the record of Manchester United in the Premier League, unbeatable.
He said: "We are Manchester United and we always want to win every game".
United have endured a brutal run of matches recently but Liverpool's goalless draw at Southampton put a top-four pursuit back in their own hands at kick-off, making this tame surrender all the more surprising, especially against an Arsenal team who still need those above them to drop points.
Ajax advanced to their first European final in 21 years despite a 3-1 defeat by Lyon in France, the Dutch side progressing 5-4 on aggregate.
Manchester United intend to play three different goalkeepers between now and the end of the season, with José Mourinho looking to the future after giving up hope of a top-four finish. If they win they will finish with three trophies, two major ones, as well as a spot in next season's Champions League, making what has been a hard season look significantly better.
There had been suggestions Mourinho would restore David de Gea for the showpiece in Stockholm in what is a huge game for United, with a third trophy of the season and a place in the Champions League group stages at stake.

"It means an opportunity to end the season in the ideal way because the final is the last match of the season". In the Premier League we can only finish fifth or sixth.
Mourinho had said, "The referee and the goal referee decide not to give it". I don't know. The referee didn't see it?
"If I'm honest, I thought [Claudio] Beauvue was going to shoot and that I would dive", Romero told AS.
The Argentine global has been restricted to Europa League fixtures, while Jose Mourinho has used David de Gea for the league games.
"They are friends and they support each other all the time".
"We won a League Cup".
"I am really happy at the moment but in Sweden we will be playing for Zlatan [Ibrahimovic] and for Marcos [Rojo]", he said.
