Europa League semi-final: Solskjaer reveals why Sevilla beat Man Utd 2-1, makes demand

Manchester United head coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has said that Sevilla defeated his team 2-1 in the Europa League semi-final tie on Sunday night because the Red Devils didn’t take their chances against the La Liga side when they should have scored goals.

He also urged Man United board not to make ‘marquee signing’ but quality signings this summer in a bid to bolster his team ahead of next season.

Man United were knocked out from the Europa League last-4 by Sevilla following two goals from Suso and Luuk de Jong.

Bruno Fernandes did score for Solskjaer’s men in Germany.

“We’re working to improve what we have. We have had spells with injuries. We are always looking to improve the squad,” Solskjaer told reporters at the post-match press conference.

“It is not about a marquee signing, it is about quality. The right personality that fits into the group.”

He added: “It is one of them if you take chances you win comfortably, not always the case in football.

“We had moments in spells in both halves where we should have scored a few.

“We have a young team. Some spells showed that this group of players would have to learn and get some consistency in their play.

“The keeper had a fantastic game. It’s disappointing we didn’t score because we have got players with that quality.

“Since February we’ve been fantastic. Then again, it’s disappointing to go out.

“We have come quite a distance. Exciting to work with the boys but you could see at the end, tired legs and tired minds.

“We definitely need to improve to move up the table and take steps in the cups. I have never had three semi-finals in one season.”
