PREMIER LEAGUE HIGHLIGHTS ► bit.ly/SkySportsPLHighlights2021
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says winning the Europa League could be "the stepping stone" to a "bright future".

Success against Unai Emery's Villarreal side in Gdansk would secure the first major trophy of Solskjaer's reign and he hopes it can prove to be a catalyst for bigger things at Old Trafford.

      @Lowe If United don't spend wisely they will be back in Europa league before new year.

    • Lowe

      @Keen Observer Cant read that mate, but United don’t care about the europa league they have champions league football next season. But I agree he’s done a good job with an underwhelming team, ‘destroyed’ is way too much though.

    • Keen Observer
      Keen Observer

      @Lowe He destroyed their dreams of winning trophy, Villarreal have budget equivalent to Southampton or Crystal palace it is a huge achievement we have the give Emery more credit.

    • Lowe

      Didn’t really destroy them did he though, barely won against a very, very poor arsenal team and managed to hold out against United eventually winning in a prolonged penalty shootout.

    Surely ole could have chosen better words than to say you can concede in the first minute you can get an injury but how about if he'd said we could get a goal in the first minute they can get a player sent off early on. It shows hes nervous and not sure. Lets all get behind ole and the team and win the cup and celebrate oles and many players first trophy.

  • trashford

    Its make or break for ole . No excuses in case of loss. Its a second tier trophy . If he must prove he is not a pe teacher , utd must win today and followed by premier league/champions league next year is must . If he however loses today ,he must be sacked before the team steps out of the stadium .

    United will lose this game, I bet any money. They were very lucky this season, Emery will outclass Ole and Villarreal will be 2021 UEL Champions, mark my words.

      @slashthe2nd VAR…. Ridiculous amount of wins from losing positions, other teams (Liverpool, Chelsea, Spurs, Arsenal) doing poorly. We’ll lose this final and you’ll see why. Next season United will be lucky to finish top 6 never mind top 4.

    It’s as good as it gets for you and that drab squad. If you lose it’s an embarrassment, if you win no one cares. Let’s be honest, you are only in it because you couldn’t cut it in the Champions league, and to be honest, even through Utd Fergie era, you never won the Champions league many times. Utd manager and club have been dining out on the late goals they scored in 1999 for 2 generations, deluded you all are.

    • Kevin Whereat

This should be must win game for United, anything less will be a question mark on the capability of Ole as a Manutd coach.

    Remember the days when Man United , Real Madrid and Barcelona were the top 3 unchallenged clubs in the world? They had all the best players and dominated year in and year out. Boy how things have changed. (Coughs*Chelsea*Man City*PSG*Atletico)

    • Tyler Martin
      Tyler Martin

      @Lord FarquaadYeah I do sound like an overreacting clueless child over hyping these teams based off of one season. Okay Atletico might have been a stretch and PSG are bottlers but Man City are literally the benchmark for successful modern clubs, even though they bottle too. If they win the UCL this season they're likley to get to more finals a little more easily after this season and could become multiple time UCL winners in the next 10 years. Never thought I'd get to say that about this club. Everyone used to look down on us 10 years ago and way back before that.

    • Lord Farquaad
      Lord Farquaad

      @Tyler Martin I see your point but you’re basing it off of this one season. Last season Barca and Madrid finsihed above atletico so how can you say Atletico consistently beat Barca and Madrid when really they’ve done it once

    • Tyler Martin
      Tyler Martin

      @Lord Farquaad Yes!! I am 21!! How did you know?, You are so smart. Lol yea I am 21 But I'm no idiot. I also have a valid point. You do too. So if I can see your point? Why can't you see mine?

    • Tyler Martin
      Tyler Martin

      @Lord Farquaad You're 100% right. The past 10 years are recent history. And Real Madrid and Barcelona did way more than Man City, PSG and Chelsea in the past decade. Hence I said "Remember those days when they USED to dominate?" I'm well aware of the prestige of those huge clubs. But they've fallen off now. And any of the three clubs I keep mentioning can beat them over and over and over again
