Villarreal make history as it defeat Man Utd to win Europa league
It is clearly an unfortunate period for Manchester United as it has ended another season without a trophy after they lost in the Europa League final against Villarreal following an epic penalty shootout on Wednesday night.
Manchester United manager, Ole Gunner Solskjaer is still searching for his first piece of silverware since taking charge of the club two-and-a-half-years ago after his side struggled to make their possession count and find a way beyond their La Liga opponents.
It was Gerard Moreno who gave his Villarreal side the lead following dire United defending from a free-kick, before Edinson Cavani capitalised on a loose ball to draw Solskjaer’s side level after the half-time whistle.
The game was eventually settled by means of a lengthy penalty shootout after a goalless extra time, which saw every single player take a spot-kick, with goalkeeper David de Gea the only player not to fire an effort into the back of the net.
