Villarreal midfielder Francis Coquelin admits the players are floating after victory in the Europa League final.

Villarreal defeated Manchester United on penalties after the scores had finished 1-1.

Coquelin said, "It feels really good. It's been a tough competition, we knew it was going to be very tough against a very good side like Manchester United. It's something special to get to the Champions League, and it's the first trophy for the club, so it's a great feeling.

"When you go down to the end, the winner takes it all; Manchester United put us under a lot of pressure and we had to dig in to get the result. The penalty shoot-out is always a lottery, and we're really pleased to have won it. We'll try to celebrate because it's something massive for the club and for all of us."
