Europa League

Harry Maguire speaks out after United's Europa League exit.

Harry Maguire insisted the"best side lost" after the red devils were beaten by Sevilla in the UEFA Europa League Semi finals on Sunday.

"The boys are devastated. We created numerous chances. The best team lost. They punished us for wasting chances. They didn't make many chances to be honest," Maguire said.

Man United took the lead through Bruno Fernandes's early penalty which was cancelled out by Suso's strike for five time winners Sevilla.

But United created most of the chances and wasted them after the break as Sevilla Shot Stopper Bono made stunning saves until Substitute Luuk De Jong turned home a Jesus Navas Cross 12 minutes from time.

"We worked our socks off and deserved to win and get through. We fell shot in a semi final for the third time this year," Loosing is not acceptable. Getting to semi finals isn't acceptable. We have to take it to the next step."

Man United's defeat to Sevilla means they are without a trophy in 3 seasons.

"We want to win silverware as soon as possible," Tonight we turned up and the best team lost. Perhaps that bit of inexperience cost us - we shouldn't have conceded the second goal."
