Mourinho: Manchester will pull together

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes that the whole of Manchester will pull together following Monday night's bomb attack.

Mourinho, who is preparing his side for the all-important Europa League final on Wednesday, commented on the explosion at the Manchester Arena that resulted in 22 deaths and 59 injuries.

The Portuguese coach believes the people of Manchester will unite in the wake of the tragic event, while hoping his players are able to maintain their focus for the clash with Ajax.

"We are all very sad about the tragic events last night; we cannot take out of our minds and our hearts the victims and their families," he told the press.

"We have a job to do and we will fly to Sweden to do that job.  It is a pity we cannot fly with the happiness that we always have before a big game.

"I know, even during my short time here, that the people of Manchester will pull together as one."
