Jose Mourinho’s Comment That Could Earn Him A Sack

Manchester United were sent crashing out of the Champions League after a 2-1 defeat to Sevilla at Old Trafford last night.

Jose Mourinho’s men put in a dismal performance despite being heavy favourites before the tie, with Wissam Ben Yedder scoring a second-half brace to stun the Premier League side.

Romelu Lukaku netted late on but it wasn’t enough as the Red Devils dumped out of the competition.

Manchester United fans are so angry with their side’s latest defeat and a number of supporters want to see the back of Mourinho.

His comment after the match:

“I told you yesterday that it would be disappointment if we would lose the match,” the United boss said.

“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.

“I sit in this chair twice in the Champions League and I knock out Man United at home at Old Trafford.

“I sit in this chair with Porto, Man United out. I sit in this chair with Real Madrid, Man United out.

“So, I don’t think it is something new for the club and of course being Manchester United manager and losing a Champions League tie at home is a disappointment.”

“I don’t have regrets,” the United boss. “I did my best, the players did their best. We tried, we lost and that’s football.”

Asked what has to change now to get United into the top-eight teams in Europe, Mourinho retorted: “Everything. Everything together.

“Everybody spends money, right? It is not just us, no? It’s not just changing for changing sake, it’s a natural process.

“And we’re not the only team that invests money. All clubs invest money in players.”

Manchester United’s next match is away to West Ham United.
