A search for silverware at Old Trafford is set to stretch into a fifth season, but the Red Devils can take solace from their Champions League silver lining.

Having reached the first-ever final under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the expectation was on United as they sought to recover the same Europa League trophy they won in 2017, during Jose Mourinho’s reighn.

But wasn’t quite meant to be, though, and Solskjaer’s side were humiliated on penalty kicks by spirited Villarreal.

As a result of that decision against Spanish contestants at the Gdansk Stadium on Wednesday night, United have been entered in Pot 2 ahead of next season’s Champions League group stage draw.

CustomarilyCustomarily, that would see them go up against some of the most feared teams on the continent.

However, they will be pitted against one team from each of the remaining three pots – with Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, arguably, granting their toughest possible group stage opponents.
