Jose Mourinho insists "the people of Manchester will pull together as one" in the wake of Monday's deadly bomb attack.

Manchester United cancelled a scheduled press conference to preview the Europa League final and held a minute's silence during an open training session following the incident, which has killed 29 people and injured 59.

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.

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.
