Young: We have to come back strongerVideo
“I think we have to come back stronger: stronger in the league, stronger in the FA Cup, stronger in the League Cup, stronger in the Champions League. We want to be fighting on all fronts,”he declared.
“We have the summer now to look forward and come back and prepare in pre-season. We wanted to win things, win titles, but it wasn’t meant to be.
“It’s disappointing starting the game like we did and coming away with nothing. You can see how the players reacted after the game; we didn’t feel like we should have lost the game today,”he continued.
“We didn’t have clear-cut chances, but on a different day there were chances we could have taken and we could have gone on and won the game.

A first-half penalty from Eden Hazard unfortunately proved to be decisive at Wembley Stadium.
“In the second half they were on the back foot, it was all us, but we couldn’t get the goal and we are disappointed with that.”
“There is excitement that is to come, but right now I am disappointed and it's going to be hard to shake off,”he admitted.
