Solskjaer Reveals Why Man Utd Lost To Villarreal In Europa League Final

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could not lead his team to glory against Unai Emery’s led Villarreal side as the Spanish side claimed the UEFA Europa League trophy.

The Yellow Submarines won on penalties after the game ended in a 1-1 draw.

Solskjaer reveals why his team lost to the Spanish side despite controlling the most part of the game.

“It’s quiet, a disappointed dressing room. That’s football for you. Sometimes it’s decided on one kick – and that’s the difference between winning and losing.

“We have to learn from that one, not savour this feeling but taste this feeling and make sure we don’t get it again.

“We didn’t turn up. We didn’t play as well as we know we can. We started alright and they got the goal, their only shot on target. We were disappointed to concede a goal on a set play.

“We pushed, we pressed, we got a goal. After we scored we didn’t control the game or dominate as we wanted.

“They made it hard for us, they closed spaces. We had the majority of possession. They defended well. We didn’t create enough big chances.

“Now is not the time to point the finger at what I’d have done differently. But when you come out without the trophy you haven’t done everything right.

“We’re getting closer and closer and better. We were one kick away from a trophy and a good night.

“We have to have the desire to come back next year and improve. The only way to get the margins on your side is to work harder and better.”
