Despite having no strikers available, Milan managed to make it a very even two legs with Manchester United. However, a Paul Pogba strike secured Manchester United a 2-1 victory on aggregate over Milan that eliminate the Italian giants from the competition.
“There is great disappointment, because we did very well over the two legs, we made one mistake and conceded a goal,” Ibra told Sky Sport Italia.
“We should’ve made more of our chances. We didn’t deserve to go out today, but this is football. You learn from the negative moments and use them to grow. We go forward and the season is not over.
“We have to come back stronger in Serie A, learn from our errors and keep improving. I want to play to win something, we are second and must continue like this to try and win the Scudetto.
“If we get into the Champions League, that is great too, but the objective is to win a trophy. I can’t say anything about next season, all I know is that I’m here at the moment.”
Playing in Europa League was still a progression for a Milan that has barely been in Europe in recent years.
“The team believes in what it’s doing, we have grown in our mentality. These players won’t accept defeat, even in training, and that’s something I encouraged.”
