Europa League final: Villarreal were programmed to defeat Man Utd – Oliseh

Former Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, has said Villarreal was “programmed” to defeat Manchester United and win the Europa League final on Wednesday.

Unai Emery’s side won 11-10 on penalties after it finished 1-1 in Gdansk.

Gerard Moreno gave Villarreal the lead in the first half before Edinson Cavani pounced in the area to make it 1-1.

However, both teams were separated by kicks from the penalty mark as the scoreline remained unchanged after 120 minutes. There, De Gea’s kick was saved by the outstanding Rulli.

“Felt like a David vs. Goliath scenario to some. But as those who have watched Villarreal regularly in La Liga and the Europa League will tell you, they were programmed to win this trophy.

“Tactically and physically well rounded with a minimal budget comparably. Guess we love underdogs,” Oliseh tweeted.
