Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has lamented over the lack of chances by his team as they lost to Villarreal in the UEFA Europa League final.
Rather, it was Villarreal who broke the deadlock in the first half while United had to expect some miracle for Edinson Cavani to equalize in the second half.

Both sides didn’t create much scoring opportunity though and after a boring extra time, the match went into penalty shoot out. As many as 21 penalty kicks were scored before David De Gea missed the decisive spot-kick to hand Unai Emery’s men the victory (11-10 on penalties).
However, speaking to BT Sport after the game, Solskjaer insisted that his side needed to work more when they were in possession of the ball. He said, “We’ve got to get this feeling and make sure it doesn’t happen again. I think we started brightly but we just didn’t turn up. They got their goal with the only shot on target they had.
“That’s football sometimes, they made it difficult for us because we had most of the possession and they defended really well. We just didn’t enough scoring opportunities”.
