Quote of the day," he who lives by penalties, will surely die by Penalties". Kind courtesy of Bruno Fernandes.
Manchester United had just a simple job on their hands yesterday, and that was to beat Unai Emery's Villarreal and take the Uefa Europa league title.
Well it was easier said than done. In fact Manchester United actually conceded the first goal by Gerard Moreno. Edinson Cavani levelled and many thought the goals will be flowing in from that point but then a stubborn Villareal side proved unpenetrateable.
The game travelled to penalties. Manchester United has been a team that is quite synonymous to penalties. They are the team to have been given the most penalties in the just ended league.
However about two miles of marathon penalty where 23 players had scored, David De Gea stood up and missed his penalty and that was the only missed penalty on the night and was enough for Villarreal to win the trophy.
Moral lesson, he who lives by penalties, actually dies by penalty and that is form Bruno Penaldes.
