Manchester United knocked out of Champions League

Manchester United knocked out of Champions League

"Of course, being a Manchester United manager and losing a Champions League tie at home is a delusion, obviously".

A needlessly conservative performance from Manchester United was punished with embarrassing Champions League elimination as Jose Mourinho's side fell to a sloppy 2-1 defeat against Sevilla at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

"The first goal changes the direction of the game and the first goal was for them".

"The team started well but the goal was missing". It is not something new for the club.

Next up for United is a quarter-final FA Cup encounter with Brighton & Hove Albion at Old Trafford on Saturday.

"That's football, we lost, but tomorrow is another day and Saturday is another match".

That Mourinho could say United getting knocked out in the round of 16 was nothing new says a lot about the Portuguese.

"I'm pleased the players aren't hiding their sadness, but we have no time for drama".

And after progressing from the last 16 in five successive seasons - United have now been eliminated at the round of 16 in two of their last three Champions League campaigns - the 2012/13 and 2017/18 seasons.

"From that moment on we tried to chase the game and they scored the second one which was a big blow".

His approach isn't pragmatic because a pragmatic manager treats a game on its merits - if a match is there to be won, he'll utilise the talents of his team to exploit a weakness in the opposition. But a fantastic team like Tottenham has exactly the same target as us to do that. "Now we have to look to the next game, which is important for us, in the FA Cup", Matic added. I did my best, the players did their best.

Sevilla's 21 shots in the second leg was the most United had given up at home in a competitive match since 2013 - in that loss to Mourinho's Real Madrid. You are going for a place in the Champions League quarter-final and there was no desire, heavy legs. Sevilla has a good team and they can hide the ball and have players in midfield who are good at doing that.
