Villarreal dumped Out of Europa Conference League


Pressure is mounting on Villarreal manager, Quique Setien following his side’s elimination from this year’s UEFA Europa Conference League by Belgian side, Anderlecht, this Thursday.

Despite a 1-1 outcome in the firstleg at the Lotto Park, playing in front of their home crowd, Samuel Chukwueze and co failed to finish the job.

Villarreal had Anderlecht right in their, but their inconsistent home form yet again cost them as the visitors only needed a 73rd minute Islam Slimani goal.

Tried as they did, the tie was lost on aggregate, 2-1, but the noose will tighten around Setien’s neck seemingly with the team struggling to record a spell or respected bid for a high up European place.

According to reports in Spain, Setien’s job isn’t safe anymore and a succession plan has taken full swing since the defeat at the Estadio de la Ceramica on Thursday night.
