Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be aiming to win his first trophy at the club on Wednesday when Man united will be playing the Europa League final against Villarreal.

The Norwegian, now 48, will forever be remembered for his late winner against Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final, and Solskjaer is eager to further embed himself in the club’s rich history.

Having helped the club to secure the top four ahead of next season Champions League, the manager is optimistic to end their four-year wait without a single trophy.

“You always feel pressure to win things at Manchester United. Progress in the league shows progress. The next step is to win trophies and challenge in the Premier League as well,” he said.

“Winning a trophy can give you belief but it can make you hungry for more. When you win things you just want to win more, you want to feel that sensation again of lifting trophies.

“I know my players will believe they can win it and that we can move on to better things, but when you get that taste of the first one, that’s a big step in the right direction.”

It should be recalled that United crashed out in the Champions League group stage despite winning three of their first four games, heaping pressure on Solskjaer as rumors swirled about a possible move for Mauricio Pochettino but his improvement at the Europa League and also securing the top four flight for United gave him more rest of taking the club to a greater height.
