Paul Pogba proved his fitness, and scored a goal which he dedicated to his late father, as the youngest Manchester United line-up in Premier League history ended the season with a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday. We had much better opportunities to score and we didn't score."We lost four players in one week, when we lost [Chris] Smalling and [Phil] Jones in the [England] national team and [Marcos] Rojo and Zlatan [Ibrahimovic] against Anderlecht" in the previous round of the Europa League.

The Portugal youth global is likely to be back in the stands for the Europa League final against Ajax on Wednesday with Sergio Romero set to start and David De Gea on the bench.

"We have two world-class goalkeepers like I have always said and two great people and good friends also", he said.

Ander Herrera attracted admiration from the last four Manchester United managers, from being man-marked by Alex Ferguson to being scouted by David Moyes and signed by Louis Van Gaal, but it is under Jose Mourinho that the little Spaniard has truly thrived.

The closing stages of the contest then saw 16-year-old Angel Gomes come on to become the first player born this millennium to play in the top flight, and the youngest player to represent United in the Premier League.

Pogba has not appeared for United since helping them reach the Europa League final in a home draw with Celta Vigo 10 days ago and Mourinho clearly feels the French midfielder needs to play after attending to his family tragedy. We will have time to think about different things afterwards.

Saul: United target Griezmann important but no one is above Atletico
He knows since March who I want, what I want and how much I want", Mourinho told Sky Sports in Monaco, where he will be watching Sunday's Formula One race.

Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City, MLS opposition in the United States and an encounter with Norwegian side Valerenga in Oslo are already in Man Utd's schedule.

The Dutchman has proven himself to be a useful option across the back-line and in midfield since moving to United from Ajax in 2014. I think for the kids it will be a big occasion, it will always be good experience for them.

But Manchester United mentor Jose Mourinho took it to another level at the weekend when he shrewdly skipped his media duties without actually breaching media rules.

Meanwhile, it could very well be a Wayne Rooney farewell at Old Trafford with the United stalwart strongly linked with an exit this summer, although as noted by The Daily Mail, a decision over his future could be delayed.

"It was how I developed into the person and player I am now".
