The city was plunged into chaos on Monday night when a terrorist detonated a bomb as thousands left Manchester Arena at the end of an Ariana Grande concert.
The blast killed 22 people and put more in hospital, leading to the UK terror level being raised to critical and thousands of extra police hitting the streets to protect civilians from further attacks.
United successfully appealed for a minute’s silence before tonight’s game in Stockholm against Ajax and, after winning 2-0, players have been quick to dedicate the victory to those affected by the tragic events earlier this week.
Herrera, who was a standout on the night, was one of the first to do that:
Ander Herrera: "I want to dedicate the trophy to the victims. This is football, but what happened two days ago was horrible."

Herrera, "Yesterday we were devastated, it was difficult to train but the manager told us the only thing we could do was win for the people

Marcus Rashford also sent his wishes to those affected – hoping their win could help bring just some joy to the faces of some:
