Manchester United winger Ashley Young admits not playing in the Champions League this season is a blow.

Young admits it is disappointing to have missed out on reaching the knockout phase of the Champions League in his first season at Old Trafford.

"From the time I signed here, I said playing in big competitions was what I wanted to do," he said.

"The Champions League is one of them obviously and it was obviously disappointing to go out in the way that we did. But we've got the chance to go into the Europa League and we're really looking to go on and win that now."
