Ashley Young has perfectly summed up how Manchester United fans will be feeling this morning.
The Old Trafford wideman didn’t get off the bench as Jose Mourinho’s men beat Southampton 3-2 at Wembley yesterday to win the EFL Cup.
But it doesn’t matter – he’s still enjoying being a winner in the first domestic final of this campaign.
United have Zlatan Ibrahimovic to thank for emerging victorious in a crazy affair at the English national stadium, as he scored late on to seal the win.
He’d opened the scoring with a brilliant free-kick before Jesse Lingard added the second for United. But Claude Puel’s Saints hit back with a Manolo Gabbiadini double.
That left it up to Zlatan to head home in the 87th minute for the win – and sparked wild celebrations among the players, coaching staff and fans.
Young obviously enjoyed them despite not playing a minute in the final and his Instagram post this morning probably sums up how every other United fan is feeling this Monday:
United will now turn their attention to a strong end to the Premier League season, with their eyes set on a top four spot at the very least.
They’re also in the Europa League last 16 and the quarter finals of the FA Cup so yesterday’s win means a cup treble is still very much a realistic target.
