UEFA HAS CONFIRMED that there will be a minute’s silence before tonight’s Europa League final between Manchester United and Ajax.

United cancelled their pre-match press conference yesterday in the wake of Monday’s attack at the Manchester Arena after 22 people, including children, were killed.

Uefa also confirmed that United’s players will wear black armbands during the game which takes place in Stockholm.

European football’s governing body also said in a statement:

The opening ceremony will also be considerably reduced as a mark of respect for the victims of the Manchester attack.

“This will mean that Swedish artists Axwell Ingrosso will now not be performing before the final.”
