Manchester United head coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has commented on his team’s performance at the Europa League final that saw them lose to Villareal on Wednesday night.
Solskjaer said though they started the game in good shape but didn’t play as well as they know they can do.
Villarreal defeated Man United 11-10 on penalties to win this year’s Europa League after the match ended 1-1 after 120 minutes.
Gerard Moreno gave Unai Emery’s side the lead in the first half, clipping Dani Parejo’s free-kick past David De Gea.
The Man United bounced back with Edinson Cavani’s hot strike that netted to a draw in the second half.
“We didn’t turn up. We didn’t play as well as we know we can do. We started alright, but they got the goal, the only shot they had on target they scored.
“We pressed, but after we scored, we couldn’t control the game and dominate as well as we wanted. That is football at times,” Solskjaer said at his post-match press conference.
