Ajax head coach Peter Bosz spoke to the media after his side lost 2-0 to Manchester United in the Europa League final.

A deflected Paul Pogba strike gave Manchester United a half-time lead before Henrick Mkhitaryan swept in from close range to seal the victory in the second half and the Europa League trophy.

After the final, Peter Bosz spoke to RTL 7 and although he criticised his own team, the Ajax boss was unimpressed with Manchester United’s tactics.

Bosz said, “We were not good enough, in every area. We were unable to play our own game. They were more experienced and physically stronger.

“You know it is going to be difficult after conceding such an unlucky goal. We were unlucky to concede that early goal, because that allowed United to sit even deeper. And it got very difficult after their second goal.

“They had everyone behind the ball and it was hard to create something. Neither team created any chances. It was not like United totally outplayed us and created chance after chance. We did not have to lose to this United.

“We are very disappointed. We all wanted to win. But we can leave with our heads held high. We have done well this Europa League campaign and brought joy to the fans. We have learned a lot from this experience.

“We have a lot of big talents and we hope to be able to hold on to them.”
