Manchester United dominated UEFA’s Europa League Squad of the Season, with eight players in the 18-man selection.
Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored as United beat Ajax 2-0 in the final in Stockholm on Wednesday.
After the final, a squad of the season was chosen by UEFA’s technical observers, which included former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, former Ajax player Cristian Chivu and ex-Finland manager Mixu Paatelainen.
United goalkeeper Sergio Romero was included in the squad after conceding just four goals in 12 appearances.
Defenders Eric Bailly, Daley Blind and Antonio Valencia also made the grade, along with midfielders Ander Herrera, Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
Pogba was labelled as the “complete midfielder” by the technical observers, while Herrera was described as “extremely important throughout United’s campaign”.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic missed the final due to injury but, having scored five goals and provided four assists throughout the tournament, he also made the squad.
He was joined up front by Ajax’s Bertrand Traore and Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette.
