Valencia star Carlos Soler admitted that Marouane Fellaini‘s late goal for Manchester United against Young Boys was a real sucker punch.
United head to the Mestella on Wednesday night to complete their Champions League Group H campaign.
The Red Devils’ place in the last 16 is already assured following Fellaini’s last-gasp winner against their Swiss side at Old Trafford a fortnight ago.
That 1-0 victory meant that Valencia are consigned to playing in the Europa League next year, leaving a bitter taste in the mouth of reported United target Soler.
“It’s true that the hand of Fellaini, if he hadn’t scored, we would have the opportunity still intact, so I have no more comment for this,” the midfielder said.
“Obviously we are a bit p*ssed off with the situation, but we cannot change it so we will have to look forward.”
