Jose Mourinho bizarrely referenced his two wins over United in Europe as a manager after their Champions League defeat
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, with Porto – Man Utd out, and with Real Madrid – Man Utd out. So this is nothing new for this football club.”
