Jose Mourinho has revealed that he joked to Sir Alex Ferguson that he had “done some work for him” after Manchester United’s Europa League final triumph.

The Portuguese coach watched his side claim a 2-0 win over Ajax in the final in Stockholm on Wednesday night as the Red Devils won the trophy for the first time and with it secured their place in next season’s Champions League.

It capped a successful first season for Mourinho at Old Trafford despite the disappointment of their sixth-placed finish in the Premier League.

Ferguson was in Sweden to watch the Red Devils claim victory over the Dutch side at the Friends Arena.

And Mourinho lifted the lid on his conversation with Ferguson after the final on Wednesday night.

Mourinho told Sky Italia: “I joked with Sir Alex, telling him I did some work for him.

“Because now we have all the European trophies and I won the only one he missed.”
