Man Utd ended their season on a high as they defeated Manchester City in the FA Cup final.

Manchester United fans love what David de Gea said in the seconds after their FA Cup final victory over Manchester City.

The Spaniard might have left Old Trafford a year ago, but he hasn't lost any love for his former club and was delighted to see them end their difficult season on a high with victory at Wembley stadium.

Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo scored in the first-half to give their side a deserved lead, before Jeremy Doku set-up a frantic finale with a low effort that beat Andre Onana at his near-post.

United held on to win 2-1 and give Erik ten Hag a special moment in what could be his final game for the club, with De Gea delighted to see it end in success, despite being released by them a year ago.

In the seconds after the full-time whistle, De Gea took to social media and wrote: "Manchester is and always will be RED!" As expected, the post was well received by United supporters with thousands of them liking it and sending the former goalkeeper their best wishes.

Victory for United not only ensures they end the season with a trophy to show for their work, but it also means they will play in Europe next season. Despite finishing in their lowest ever Premier League position, they will play in the Europa League, with Newcastle United missing out on qualification for the Conference League.
