Manchester United lost to Villarreal on penalties in the Europa League final.




Manchester United fans have given their thoughts on where the club should go next following their defeat to Villarreal in the Europa League final.

United struggled to break down the Spanish team's defensive block throughout the game, falling 1-0 down in the first half before Edinson Cavani equalised in the second half.

Marcus Rashford then spurned a glorious chance to give the Reds the lead before the game went into extra-time and subsequently penalties.

David de Gea was unable to save any of the spot-kicks before seeing his own stopped by opposite number Geronimo Rulli to lose 11-10 after sudden death.

The limp performance, along with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's decision not to make any substitutions until extra-time prompted plenty of comments from fans when asked what the club have to do next to improve.

"Where to start," asked GamingBear. "First of all we need a quality CDB as well as a strong centre-back pairing. Lindelof has not proved himself over the past few years and should be sold.

"le needs to become a lot more courageous with decision-making, especially around line-up decisions and in-game management. The lack of substitutions were poor, keeping players who were underperforming.

"Learn to defend set-pieces.

"That's just the start of it. We've made some progress this season but there's lots of lessons that need to be learned and fast."

Some fans pointed to Solskjaer's lack of substitutes and in particular his decision to stick with De Gea for the shootout despite Dean Henderson's better track record at saving penalties.

One user, Redforever4, argued United needed more experience on the coaching staff for situations such as that.

They said: "United need a strong, experienced number two, who would probably have told Ole that Henderson was a better option just before the end for the shootout."

Hussein Pogba, meanwhile, said that the Reds need to improve their squad in the transfer market, listing five players they felt would help.

"We lack trophy winning players," they said. "Grealish, Sancho, Varane, Bisouma, Max Aarons."

Yet others were concerned that not much will change in the summer, predicting a lack of new signings.

Blimmer said: "Too many players need shipping, no more than three first-team signings will come.

"Even then, I doubt it will be the stars people want or the media link us to."
