For all the moaning and criticism amongst our fans, Manchester United’s season didn’t turn out to be all that bad, eh? Jose Mourinho delivered glory in two of the four trophies on offer, and we ended the campaign by scooping the Europa League title, as we saw off a talented Ajax team.
In doing so, the Red Devils now have Champions League football to look forward to come September time. It’s a competition that United have always been accustomed to competing in, although the last few years has seen us jolt back down to earth in that regard.
Anyway, the Europa League trophy is now back home in Manchester, and the Old Trafford club didn’t mess around in getting their latest addition placed in the official museum at the stadium.
It was the final piece of the puzzle and credit to Mourinho and his staff for winning this trophy whilst having their backs totally against the wall. It was the one item of silverware that we’ve never won, and to complete the set feels pretty good.
Now attentions turn to next season. We’re all harbouring hopes of performing much better in the Premier League, as well as the Champions League being a good barometer as to how we stack up against the best sides in the world. Also, don’t forget we have the Super Cup to look forward to in early August.
