Jose Mourinho Came Out With Some Really Bizarre Comments After Man United’s Champions League Exit

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was left to face the music on Tuesday night as his side suffered a surprise Champions League exit at the hands of Sevilla.

Having come away with a 0-0 draw from the Sanchez Pizjuan with a 0-0 draw in the first leg, it was assumed by many that Man United would have finish the job at Old Trafford, but a late two-goal showing from Sevilla substitute Wissam Ben Yedder set the Spanish side on their way to an impressive victory over their uninspired hosts.

After the game, Mourinho chose probably the worst moment possible to remind everyone of two previous occasions that they have been knocked out – both caused by him when he was in charge at Porto and Real Madrid:

The Man United boss also claimed that his side didn’t actually play that badly in the match itself, despite the 2-1 defeat, presumably as he was watching a different game at the time:

“I don’t think the performance was bad.

“I told you yesterday that it would be disappointment if we would lose the match.

“I don’t want to make a drama of it, we don’t have time. We have a match on Saturday, we have no time to be sad for more than 24 hours and that’s football.

“That’s not the end of the world.”

In assessing Man United’s season relative to the other Premier League teams, Mourinho namechecked Tottenham as a team in the same position as them, while also remarking that while Liverpool were still in the Champions League, they have been knocked out of the FA Cup:

“Tottenham, same as us. Liverpool are in to the next phase of the tournament? Yes, this is true, but they do not have the FA Cup either.” 

With the Premier League now well beyond them, this weekend’s FA Cup clash with Brighton now represents Man United’s only hope of winning a trophy this season – arguably making it the biggest game of the remainder of Mourinho’s campaign.
