Champions League: Mourinho criticised after Sevilla stun Manchester United

Champions League: Mourinho criticised after Sevilla stun Manchester United

Mourinho was on the winning side that night as Real Madrid manager and also sent United out of the last 16 when Porto boss in 2004.

Three quick thoughts from Man United's stunning 2-1 home defeat to Sevilla.

"We should have scored earlier, I think maybe in the first half with the half-chances that we created".

Romelu Lukaku accused his Manchester United team-mates of "hiding" as Jose Mourinho's men crashed out of the Champions League.

How about giving Fellaini a first start in any competition since November 22, in United's biggest game of the season? And after replacing the ineffective Muriel, he scored two goals with his first two touches at Old Trafford.

With United 16 points behind the Premier League's runaway leaders Manchester City, the FA Cup is Mourinho's last chance of claiming silverware in his second season at the club. The loss meant that Sevilla qualified to the quarterfinal stages of the tournament for the first time in 60 years.


Fellaini always does a job but is a limited player, one who will only make a team more negative in its approach.

The worst part of it seems to be Jose Mourinho's lack of desire - or worse yet lack of knowledge and expertise - to guide his team forward.

"A fantastic team like Tottenham has to do exactly the same as us", the Portuguese added.

"Everything, everything has to change", Mourinho said, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.

Two goals from Sevilla's Wissam Ben Yedder secured the Spanish side a place in the quarter-finals, after United's extremely cautious tactics backfired. Sevilla won but so did the side who tried to play the game. We have no time to be sad for more than 24 hours, that's football. "We had good situations, we had good periods". "We had a big game. against Liverpool and we came with high confidence to play this game, but Sevilla were better than us, so they deserved it".

Manchester United will face Brighton in the Emirates Cup quarter-final clash on Saturday in their next game in what is effectively the only competition realistically possible for Mourinho to win this season.
