Gallery: Sevilla, including Arsenal and QPR flops, lift Europa League trophy

The Spanish side beat Dnipro 3-2 in Poland to win the Europa League.

Manchester United linked Carlos Bacca was the star of the show as Sevilla won successive Europa League trophies on Wednesday night.

The Colombian, who is on Van Gaal's radar according to publications such as the Metro, scored a brace to help the La Liga side beat Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk of the Ukraine in the final in Warsaw.

And there were plenty more familiar faces on the pitch and benches, with several discarded Premier League players picking up winner's medals. 

Jose Antonio Reyes, who started the game as captain before being replaced on the hour, was at one point the next big thing after initially impressing at Arsenal a decade ago, but his career struggled to realise his potential. He moved back to his boyhood club in 2012, and has now won two Europa League titles in a row.

Stephane Mbia left QPR after their relegation two season ago, and has been a central figure in Sevilla's two Europa League titles in his two seasons at the club.

On-loan forward Iago Aspas didn't feature in the game, but will still be delighted to have gone home with a Europa League winner's medal - especially as his Liverpool teammates have struggled this season in their own quest for success. The 27-year-old may well now move to Sevilla after scoring 10 goals in 25 games this season.

There were other players with experience in English football featuring in or around the match, as former Blackburn striker Nikola Kalinic opened the scoring for Dnipro, while for Sevilla, Denis Suarez and Gerard Deulofeu also picked up medals, while Daniel Carrico, who featured in just 3 games for Reading in the 2012-13 season, played the full 90 minutes.

Below are a selection of the best pictures from the night:
