Bruno Fernandes was reduced to tears after Manchester United lost the Europa League final

  • Manchester United lost Europa League final to Villarreal in a penalty shootout
  • Bruno Fernandes was visibly gutted and broke down in tears after the match
  • Paul Scholes questioned if some of United's stars would be hurt by the loss 

Bruno Fernandes was reduced to tears after Manchester United's agonizing penalty shootout defeat against Villarreal in the Europa League final.

The United talisman played an inspirational role in getting United to Gdansk, having scored five times and assisting four from his nine games in the Europa League this season, but was left heartbroken after they fell at the last hurdle.

David de Gea's penalty miss handed Villarreal an 11-10 victory and boss Unai Emery his fourth Europa League triumph.

Wednesday's final was United's only opportunity to claim silverware this season but the defeat meant they finish it empty handed.

Fernandes, who has been United's standout player this term but struggled to make an impact against Villarreal, was visibly distraught after the match and broke down in tears.

A crestfallen Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted his side 'didn't turn up' and hopes they will learn from the crushing defeat.

'We've got to, not savour this one, but taste this feeling and make sure we don't get it again,' he said.

'It's quiet [in the dressing room] of course. It's a disappointed dressing room. That's football for you. Sometimes it's decided on one kick and that's the difference between winning and losing. Got to learn from that one.

'Now is not the time to point the finger at what I'd have done differently. But when you come out without the trophy you haven't done everything right.

'We're getting closer and closer and better. We were one kick away from a trophy and a good night.

'We have to have the desire to come back next year and improve. The only way to get the margins your side is to work harder and better.

'Can Manchester United call this season a success? No.'

Former United midfielder Paul Scholes slammed the side's mentality after the chastening loss

Club legend Paul Scholes criticised United's mentality after the match and questioned whether losing the final would really hurt the players.

'It's difficult to come out of that game and give them credit, they weren't good tonight,' Scholes told BT Sport .

'Overall there has been progress. But does losing hurt them enough? It's almost become an accepted thing. From Ole's point of view, where is the demands?

'He has made progress, but this club expects to win trophies. If it gets into the next couple of years and there's still nothing he might have a problem. There aren't the demands there where he has to win.

'A few players, it doesn't hurt them. Bruno Fernandes, Edinson Cavani, they won't like it. They look like they're proper hurt, the others it can look acceptable, even from the manager. They've become a nice club.'
