It was supposed to be a formality, but Manchester United's last-16 Champions League second leg vs Sevilla was anything but.

After a drab 0-0 in Spain, the bookies had the Red Devils as hot favourites to progress to the last-eight.

In the build-up to the game, the likes of Rio Ferdinand, Paul Scholes and Steven Gerrard all predicted an easy night at Old Trafford, seemingly forgetting the enormous European pedigree Sevilla do possess.

And, in typical fashion, the BT Sport trio really were proven wrong, with Sevilla winning 2-1 courtesy of two goals from substitute Wissam Ben Yedder.

It was a true disaster-class from Jose Mourinho, who appeared to get his team selection and tactics all wrong on such a huge night.

Marcus Rashford suffered on the right to accommodate Alexis Sanchez, Juan Mata was inexplicably left out and Scott McTominay should certainly have started.

As such, you'd expect Mourinho to be a bit apologetic in his post-match interview, right? Wrong, very wrong.

The self-confessed 'Special One' appeared rather chirpy after the game and managed to deliver a classic quote that has pretty much shocked the whole of social media.

You almost have to read it a second time and yes, he did actually say it.

Wow, in the wake of an embarrassing loss, Mourinho finds a way to praise his past achievements.

Naturally, the United fan base were up in arms over the ridiculous outburst and Scholes' son led the charge, voicing his frustration on Twitter.

His tweets can be seen below.

Yeah, he's not happy and can you blame him?

It's a typical Mourinho comment, one which means he will never really truly endear himself to the United faithful. Well, that and his overly-cautious style of play.

He also made a pretty odd comment about Liverpool in his initial interview with BT after the match, saying: “Liverpool has the Champions League but they don’t have the FA Cup.”

Talk about clutching at straws.


A club the size of United certainly shouldn't be resorting to claims like that and it is yet another example of how dull Mourinho's mind games have become.
