Europa League trophy

Manchester United have been paired alongside Fenerbahce, Feyenoord and Zorya Luhansk in the Europa League group stage.

The competition is a rarity in that it eludes United’s trophy cabinet – but Jose Mourinho’s men face a challenging pool stage, should they wish to change that.

The Red Devils were the first name pulled out of the hat at the draw in Monaco.

With Fenerbahce set to face the Red Devils, United could be reunited with former forward Robin van Persie, who himself has been heavily linked with a return to the Premier League.

The Europa League campaign gets underway at Feyenoord on September 15th, before FC Zorya Luhansk visit Old Trafford a fortnight later.

Elsewhere, Southampton face Inter Milan, Sparta Prague and Hapoel Beer-Sheva, who came so close to knocking Celtic out of the Champions League play-offs.

The full draw is as follows:

Pool A: Manchester United, Fenerbahce, Feyenoord, Zorya Luhansk.
Pool B: Olympiacos, APOEL, Young Boys, FC Astana.
Pool C: Anderlecht, Saint-Etienne, FSV Mainz, Gabala SC.
Pool D: Zenit St. Petersburg, AZ Alkmaar, Maccabi Tel Aviv, Dundalk FC.
Pool E: Viktoria Plzen, AS Roma, Austria Wien, FC Astra Giurgiu
Pool F: Athletic Club, KRC Genk, SK Rapid Wien, US Sassuolo Calcio
Pool G: AFC Ajax, Standard de Liege, Celta de Vigo, Panathinaikos FC
Pool H: Shakhtar Donetsk, SC Braga, KAA Gent, Konyaspor.
Pool I: FC Schalke, FC Salzburg, FC Krasnodar, OGC Nice.
Pool J: Fiorentina, PAOK FC, Slovan Liberec, Qarabag FK.
Pool K: Internazionale, AC Sparta Praha, Southampton, Hapoel Beer-Sheva FC
Pool L: Villarreal, FC Steaua Bucharest, FC Zurich, Osmanlispor A.S.

This is the only trophy United have never won. In it's previous guises - Fairs Cu and UEFA Cup we never even got to the final. It would give us a clean sweep of all the major European trophies as we won the ECWC way back in the early days of Sir Alex.
