Manchester United vs. Cardiff City - Football Match Report

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Wes Brown

Manchester United's miserable season ended in a whimper, as already relegated Cardiff City stormed the Theatre of Dreams to claim a 2-0 win.

But since a last-minute victory against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last-16, United's season has returned to turmoil.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer headed off for a major summer rebuilding job as Manchester United manager with the words of opposite number Neil Warnock ringing in his ears and underlining the scale of the task facing him. Find out by following our live matchcast. "Last time we were in the Europa League with loads of youngsters we won it and the League Cup we have to start the season with the aim to win". I've been in the reserves and we send them away saying, 'Come on, look after yourself.' Because you never know what the manager is going to do when you come back after the summer.

United are scheduled to visit Australia, Singapore and China for four matches in July, although their schedule could be disrupted if they are forced to start in the second qualifying round of next season's Europa League.

"I have to say it'll be nice for them to have a full season somewhere and play but then again maybe the best place is here, when you train with the best players in the world and in this environment".

The extra prize money finishing in fifth would gain United will potentially go towards a summer rebuild of Solskjaer's squad.

"We know as staff and players that next season we've got a great challenge ahead".

"We have hit more or less a brick wall so that's of course very disappointing."

Mendez-Laing - who had two career Premier League goals before yesterday - doubled the lead with a far-post finish from Josh Murphy's cross after yet more poor United defending.

The 46-year-old also revealed how the power dynamic in the league has shifted since his days as a professional footballer. "They are the ones we have to make sure we catch up and don't let anyone closer to us".

"Next season, we've got to close that gap".

"It is not like when I used to play, us or Arsenal would win the league".
