David de Gea failed in marathon penalty shootout as Villarreal ended Manchester United’s hopes of a Europa League glory in Gdansk.
The loss from the United’s goalkeeper means Villarreal have won their first ever Europa title after a display that had the entire players on the pitch take the shootout.
It was a game that lasted for 120 minutes with a 1-1 draw before both sides went into penalty.
Villarreal who did not qualify for the Champions League automatically gets a slot by this win. They also became the 13th side in Europe’s big five leagues to hit the 100-goal milestone in all competitions this season (100)
Former Arsenal boss who guided the Spanish side to the title also becomes the first manager to win the Europa Cup four times.
Umery had won the trophy three times with Sevilla before losing on one occasion with Arsenal.
The game recorded very low shots on target, with just three shots on target (one for Villarreal and two for Manchester United). It remains the lowest tally in a Europa League final since Porto v Sporting Braga in 2011 also recorded just three.
