Jose Mourinho says Manchester United’s Champions League exit is “nothing new” for the club, surprisingly referencing how he has knocked them out twice as a manager. Mourinho’s side put in a lacklustre performance on Tuesday as Sevilla won 2-1 on the night and on aggregate in the last 16, despite United being overwhelming favourites after the first leg.
In his post-match press conference, Mourinho insisted he accepted his side’s performance, despite registering just four shots on goal over two legs, and referred to his victories over United as manager with Porto (2004) and Real Madrid (2013).
Mourinho said: “I’ve sat in this chair twice before in the Champions League, and I knock Man Utd out at home twice, with Porto – Man Utd out, and with Real Madrid – Man Utd out. So this is nothing new for this football club.
Mourinho finished by insisting losing is part of the natural process, and when asked what needs to change, he said: “Everything, everything together. Everybody spends money right, it’s not just us, right? It’s a natural process. “I don’t have regrets. I did my best, the players did their best, we tried, we lost, and that’s football.”
Obviously these comments didn’t seat well with a lot and fans and even ex united players with Scholes and Ferdinand coming for Jose and the performance of his r=team over the two legs.
