Bailly says Man Utd capable of winning Europa League

Manchester United defender Eric Bailly feels they can win the Europa League this season.

Although Bailly is only 22 with less than 100 first-team matches to his name, he has good experience in the Europa League after reaching last season's semi-finals with old club Villarreal. He was knocked out by beaten finalists Liverpool and thus hopes to go one stage further with United this campaign.

“Playing in the semi-final was something very special as that was the first time for me that I had succeeded in reaching such a round of a competition," he told MUTV. “Now I have more experience, this is the second time I have played in this competition and I hope that will help.

“If we keep working hard as a team and keep our spirit going I hope we can achieve the same or go even better and bring the trophy home. The first thing we need to do though is think step-by-step and take each game as it comes. We need to focus on the next game and then we'll see what happens in the future."
