Man United players react, after sealing qualification past Real Sociedad

Manchester United have made it to the round of 16 of the UEFA Europa League this season, after beating Real Sociedad 4-0 on aggregate.

The return leg of the tie, which took place at Old Trafford on Thursday, was a drab affair, but thanks to a stellar performance away from home, we were able to make it through.

And the players have expressed their joy at the progress so far, as we look forward to our taking on our opponents in the next stage of the competition.

Taking to social media after Thursday’s clash, players like Bruno Fernandes, Shola Shoretire, Daniel James, and more said:

Fernandes on Instagram: “Always an honour and privilege to use the armband of @manutd #mufc”

Shola Shoretire: “What a feeling to make my European debut! To become United’s youngest ever player in Europe is an incredible honour and a proud moment for me and my family! On to the next round.”

Dan James: “On to the round of 16”

Eric Bailly: “Job done. We’re through to the last 16”

Meanwhile, United face Chelsea in the Premier League next, as we aim to widen the gap between us and the London club.
