Paul Pogba believes Manchester United will come back stronger following the disappointment of losing the Europa League final.
United were beaten 11-10 in a dramatic penalty shoot-out by Villarreal in Gdansk on Wednesday, goalkeeper David de Gea missing the crucial kick after the game had finished 1-1 after extra time.
The defeat means manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still waiting to claim his first trophy in the job.
Indeed, the Red Devils have not won silverware since triumphing in the same competition under Jose Mourinho in 2017.
For Pogba – who was substituted in the 116th minute, denying him the chance to take a penalty – the defeat was a disappointing way to finish the campaign, though the midfielder quickly switched his focus to the future.
“I needed some days to reflect after the match,” Pogba wrote in a Twitter post to accompany a picture of the United squad gathered together.
“Of course, very upset not to win the final but we’re a team that will look forward with our heads held high.
“Thank you to all of the fans for the support. We will come back stronger.”
