Manchester United's European exit 'nothing new' for Mourinho

Jose Mourinho reminds Man Utd fans of Sir Alex Ferguson's failures after Sevilla loss

Jose Mourinho reminds Man Utd fans of Sir Alex Ferguson's failures after Sevilla loss

The Spain number one has himself explained recently that he is satisfied with his lot at United, telling the Star on Sunday: "To be honest I am just really happy".

Soon after, he surfaced at Chelsea, called himself The Special One and duly lived up to that self-proclamation.

Then weighing in on Spurs' and Liverpool's season.

Of course, a knockout tie in the Champions League is decided over 180 minutes, not 90. The two sides battled to a scoreless draw two weeks ago in the first leg in Seville and it was clear from the start of Tuesday's contest that United coach Jose Mourinho would stick with the same approach: Concede possession and wait for chances on the counter.

Nemanja Matic pulled no punches about United's tame performance.

The Portuguese asked for permission to enter Sevilla's dressing room at Old Trafford before passing on his best wishes to Vincenzo Montella's squad. There was Ashley Young on his honkers, looking spent.

Mourinho was on the winning side that night as Real Madrid manager and also sent United out of the last 16 when Porto boss in 2004.

This new failure will make both the club and many players rethink the future. We know that our supporters are sad because of this result.

However, he has dealt with injuries throughout much of his career that has prevented him from truly fulfilling his potential. In Bradford's only season with the Eagles (2015), he passed for 3,725 yards, 19 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions.

Mourinho said that they don't have time for dramas and that they will have to work hard as on Saturday they have another important match.

Mourinho recently extended his contract until 2020 but if there is any rift between him and the United board over transfer strategy, Paris Saint-Germain - who he praised earlier in the season - are waiting in the wings. At the end, we kept pushing, but it was not enough.

Ben Yedder's introduction was the key to Sevilla's triumph, the 27-year-old forward netting his seventh and eighth goals of the competition to stun Jose Mourinho's team.

But a fantastic team like Tottenham has exactly the same target as us to do that. "In the second half we were more clinical with Ben Yedder, he made the difference today". Mourinho's decision to change the team which played with great discipline and desire in the 2-1 Premier League win over Liverpool on Saturday was puzzling, especially given the alterations it forced across the field. They tried to do that and did that for the majority of the time.

They think his response was "embarrassing" and "idiotic".

. The first leg finished goalless at the Sanchez Pizjuan and the Red Devils had such a strong home record.

"Everybody spends money - it's not just us, right?" I don't have regrets. Life goes on and this is football, we have to accept that'.

Ever Banega's corner was flicked on for Ben Yedder to get away a header that De Gea tipped onto the bar, only for it to agonisingly curl over the line.

But Mourinho's declaration that he does not have regrets betrays a man who will not change. That's the question on the minds of numerous United faithful. That's not a road he wants to travel down.
