Manchester United have done it. They beat Ajax (rather comfortably), to win the Europa League. Jose Mourinho must be so proud of his players, and we can end this season on a real high after such a tough, rigorous year, particularly on the players.
Our campaign is now sadly over, but now it is time to reflect on the game, and in particular the performance of a certain Marouane Fellaini. The much-maligned Belgian has had a mixed year, but tonight, he was simply brilliant.
Fellaini won every header, challenged for every 50/50 and on the whole, he helped Manchester United win the all-important midfield battle.
The mental toughness of this man is truly outstanding, and that is testament to his character. He takes to the field every single time he gets picked, wearing our shirt with true pride and I do not understand the hate he recieves at times.
Tonight, you are hard pressed to find a better player wearing our famous jersey. From minute one, he was superb. He bullied Ajax’s young side, and was one of the main reasons as to why we’re celebrating this evening.
It’s always nice to see him getting praise on social media, and tonight was one of those rare occasions. We’ve compiled the best tweets aimed at Marouane Fellaini below. Sit back and enjoy.

United can be primitive with Fellaini but he has had a largely excellent season for Mourinho. Was excellent here, will enjoy cult status.

Said it before the game but tonight Fellaini was a real asset. Use him in the right way vs the right team + he's impossible to defend. pic.twitter.com/Eh6tW1RMFm

Fellaini winning every header. Playing a huge role in this game. Hasn't put a foot wrong. Will go unnoticed.

This game is going to consist of 90 minutes of Fellaini elbowing teenagers in the face. This is going to be glorious.
