Ole Gunnar Solskjær said Manchester United’s trophy-less campaign amounts to an unsuccessful season after going down to Villarreal on penalties in the Europa League final. The teams finished 120 minutes locked at 1-1 before the Spanish side won an epic shootout 11-10.
Speaking after the match in Gdansk and following a league campaign where the club finished second, Solskjær said success is measured in trophies. “No, it is not a successful season, of course,” he said. “And that is the fine margins in football, sometimes one kick can define a season as a good one, or a successful one, and one kick says it’s not.”
