Villarreal beat Man United to Europa League glory

VILLARREAL beat Manchester United to win the Europa League final after an unbelievable penalty shootout which the Spaniards won 11-10.

Edinson Cavani equalised following Gerard Moreno’s opener in normal time and it was David de Gea’s missed penalty in the shootout which handed Unai Emery a fourth Europa League title.

The SunSports reports that all eleven of Villarreal’s penalty takers kept their nerve, including goalkeeper Rulli who thumped the ball into the top corner.

But it was De Gea who cracked first and he saw his tame effort saved.

Unai Emery is surely the King of the Europa League having won four Europa League titles.

And he lost a final whilst in charge of Arsenal, losing to league and city rivals Chelsea.

Villarreal have won their first ever European title in their first European final.
