Stockholm Stands Still: Europa League Final's Tribute To The Manchester Terror Victims

Stockholm Stands Still: Europa League Final's Tribute To The Manchester Terror Victims

Stockholm stood still tonight for the victims of the Manchester terror attack.

Before the final, both sides paid tribute on the pitch with one minute's silence. Manchester United wore black armbands in respect to those killed and injured in the attack.

22 people died as a result of the blast at the Manchester Arena on Monday night.

The Swedish city is hosting the final of the Europa League between Manchester United and Dutch side, Ajax.


At times like this football does not matter. They say football is a matter of life and death, but following events in the North-west you realise it is much less than that.

Before arriving in Stockholm, the United manager, Jose Mourinho, said: "We're all very sad about the tragic events last night; we can't take out of our minds and hearts the victims and their families.


"We have a job to do and will fly to Sweden to do that job. It's a pity we cannot fly with the happiness 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."

This is a place that has been through some hard times: oppressions, recessions, depressions and dark times.

But we keep fighting back with Greater Manchester spirit. Northern grit, northern wit, and Greater Manchester's lyrics.
