Man Utd Boss Solskjaer Urges Players to ‘Taste’ Defeat and Use as Motivation as Bruno Breaks Down into Tears (Details below)



MANCHESTER UNITED boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has urged his deflated troops to ‘taste the defeat’ after they lost the Europa League final against Villarreal.

After the two teams were tied at 1-1 after 90 minutes and extra-time, it was down to the dreaded penalty shootout.

And after a dramatic period, keeper David De Gea was the only player to miss from the spot as Villarreal won 11-10 to bag the silverware.

Star man Bruno Fernandes was in tears at the end, with team-mate Marcus Rashford seen slumped on the bench.

Speaking afterwards, a crestfallen Solskjaer hopes his side can learn from the crushing defeat.

He said: “We’ve got to, not savour this one, but taste this feeling and make sure we don’t get it again.

“It’s quiet [in the dressing room] of course. It’s 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. Got to learn from that one.

“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 your side is to work harder and better.
