Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team finished season without a trophy

Manchester United were forced to swallow a tough pill after a hard-fought 2020/21 season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team came agonisingly close before enduring a Europa League final defeat to Villarreal.

The defeat extended the Premier League giants run without a major trophy to four years as they lost 11-10 on penalties following a 1-1 draw in Gdansk, with goalkeeper David de Gea missing the final spot-kick.

United are now without a trophy since their Europa League triumph in 2017.

However, United did battle hard in the league, making Manchester City fight for their title.

"It's not a successful season and those are the fine margins in football. Sometimes one kick can define a season as successful or a good one, and it can define it as not one," said Solskjaer.

"Trophies matter and that's what matters at this club."
