Manchester United have gone a whole season without winning a trophy, after missing out on a chance to progress to the final of the Europa League, no thanks to a 2-1 loss to Sevilla on Sunday.

But Olé Gunnar Solskjaer remains happy and optimistic about the future, as he believes his side is a work in progress, who have shown signs of improvement over the season.

He told the media, after United’s loss to Sevilla, “We have to keep improving, keep doing what they’ve done every single day. They’ve worked so hard, right attitude and mentality.

“Many, many different things but keep on improving what we’re doing day in and day out and believe in what we’re doing. You can see at times today what we can be about and what we are about.”

The Red Devils were hopeful of winning something this season, after previously missing out on the FA Cup and League cups.

But poor finishing and defending cost Solskjaer’s men, as Sevilla scored two cheap goals, to progress at their expense.
