Manchester will 'pull together as one' says Mourinho

The attack took place at the end of an Ariana Grande concert in central Manchester late Monday.

The suicide bomb attack, which also injured 59 people, struck after the end of a concert by USA pop star Ariana Grande at the Manchester Arena on Monday.

"We are all very sad about the tragic events last night; we can not take out of our minds and our hearts the victims and their families", he said. "We have a job to do and we will fly to Sweden to do that job".

"When you play for Manchester United you have big responsibility, but these are the kind of games that we all love to play and hopefully we can play good and lift the trophy".

A tribute is also expected ahead of the Europa League final at the Friends Arena, Sweden's national football stadium.

The Premier League club, who face Ajax in the Swedish capital, cancelled their pre-match news conference as a mark of respect.

Stockholm police spokesman Kjell Lindgren said there has been no threat to Wednesday's match. "It takes away some of the sparkle of what will happen tomorrow".

"We have been in contact with our English as well as Dutch colleagues and they are helping us with information, they are visiting us tomorrow, and we are quite satisfied with how we are prepared and the information that we get".

Those sentiments were echoed by executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward in an email to staff confirming the cancellation of Wednesday's Europa League party at the Victoria Warehouse. Our thoughts are with the victims and the families of those affected.

Ajax boss Bosz joined those expressing sympathy, shock and solidarity, with the atrocity taking the edge off the club's first major final in 21 years.

Although the kidnapping of the Chibok girls caught global attention, Boko Haram has kidnapped thousands of adults and children. He emphasized, though, that he considered all 82 of the girls to be his daughters "because majority worship in my church".

Earlier winger Jesse Lingard said: "My thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by last nights attack on this attractive city".

"It's devastating", said midfielder Lasse Schone.

"It's for other people to decide that", Bosz told reporters. "Let only idiots do what they want". "If we win, we can have two gifts with the trophy and the Champions League".

It's a great football city, Manchester - a divided one, red and blue - and nobody should be taken in by the myth that United have forgotten where they are from.

David Beckham wrote on Facebook: "As a father & a human what has happened truly saddens me".

Clinching a Champions League berth could also prove crucial if United were to attract Antoine Griezmann to Old Trafford.

Speaking to a news conference at the Friends Arena in Stockholm, Bosz opened by offering his condolences and those of the Dutch club to the victims and their families of the attack.

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.
