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

Jose Mourinho Man Utd GETTY BT SPORTJose Mourinho's Man Utd showed a lack of desire against Sevilla says Scholes

And for Mourinho to gloat about his past victories over United shows a disconnect from the fans that has the potential to create a toxic atmosphere at Old Trafford in the future. United needed a complete change in mentality, and had 12 minutes to score three goals. It's a natural process, every team invests.

Romelu Lukaku speaks honestly to @DesKellyBTS after Man Utd's Champions League exit. "If you are arguing you want the best for each other but at times we gave the ball away was really careless". Sure, he delivered two trophies in his first season but at times his overly cautious approach to big games has been joyless and indefensible.

It is not beyond the realms of possibility to see morale drop in the United dressing room following this loss, and with the FA Cup being the only competition the Red Devils can win this season, a quarter-final loss to Brighton this Sunday would be disastrous.

Mourinho is no longer a victor; he can no longer claim to be the best manager in the world.

His decision to select Marouane Fellaini over Paul Pogba was a lightning rod for criticism even before Wissam Ben Yedder had come off the bench to score twice, and it will remain an unfathomable selection for years to come for most United supporters.

United's display lacked the attributes that saw them beat bitter rivals Liverpool 2-1 on Saturday. The Spaniards had never won a UEFA Champions League match in England.

"It's not the end of the world". I sit in this chair with Porto - Man Utd out. "I don't know what Real Madrid's intentions are, but if I were them, I would think of another player".

Trying to get United back to the levels of the Alex Ferguson era is a hard enough task but he must do so while the club down the road, once mocked by Ferguson as the "noisy neighbours", win titles and universal praise for their style of football.

If he thought he could serve up performances like that and have fans just brush it off, he was sadly mistaken.

How far can Sevilla and Roma go in the Champions League?

But Mourinho left United in a precarious position by abandoning attacking intent in the first leg in Seville.

United should have been back in the game soon afterwards. Ben Yedder could have sealed the game when put clean through on goal, only for De Gea to make a good save with his legs.

"I said that it would be a disappointment if we lost the match". The result is awful but we're Manchester United we will bounce back for sure with your support!
