Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted that this season had not been a success after losing the Europa League.

The team faced well-trained defensive Villareal who could not collapse and lost the game on penalties 11-10.

It’s a game they should have won and the defeat is sure to revive the ‘Ole Out’ section of United fans.

After the game, Ole was asked at BT Sport if he thought the season was a success, reached a European Cup final and finished second in the league – the manager said a resounding no.

He said, “If you come out without a trophy, you haven’t done everything right.

“We have to get better, as simple as that. We did very well this season, the start was very difficult. We prevailed in the league, maybe got closer to the top than we thought and reached a final.

“But you have to win this final to have a good season.”

To learn a lesson

But the boss left some optimistic words to fans, stating that improvements were being made. This will be an important learning curve for the many young players in the squad.

The manager added, “We’re getting closer and closer and better, we were just a kick away to have a trophy and a good night.

“We have to want to come back next and make sure we get better and better.

“It’s a disappointed changing room. This is soccer for you. Sometimes you choose to kick and sometimes that’s the difference between winning and losing.

“We have to taste that feeling and make sure you don’t get it again. We didn’t show up. “
