Revealed The Reason The Arsenal Players Hated Alexis Sanchez Posted by Daniel Jenkins

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho admitted his side was stunned by Sevilla's first goal but he's already looking beyond the shock 2-1 loss to Sevilla which saw them crash out of the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday at Old Trafford. The Chilean was disposed 37 times in the first half alone, which is a worrying number for a player who is expected to make a difference on the pitch.

However, after boasting of his own record when playing against United previously, Mourinho says that the result should not be shocking.

"I knock out Manchester United at home at Old Trafford".

"Then we had a few half chances but we didn't really score, and then they scored the first goal. So this is nothing new for this football club.", Jose Mourinho said.

However, the 72-year-old said that he is not planning to wait, and that the withdrawal would take place immediately. Duterte had previously said the Philippines had never fully ratified the statute that makes it a member of the ICC.

They face Brighton and Hove Albion in the quarter-finals on Saturday. We lost and tomorrow is another day and Saturday is another match. Paul Scholes said United's players had a poor "attitude" and Rio Ferdinand said United are a "work in progress". "When they scored the first goal, the game is completely different".

Vincenzo Montella's unfancied Andalusian side triumphed 2-1 on the night, and on aggregate, to earn their first victory in the elite competition on English soil as Sevilla reached the European Cup quarter-finals for the first time since 1958. "But I believed in myself, believed in the team and we showed we are a great team".

"Of course, being Manchester United manager and losing a Champions League tie at home is a delusion obviously".

Unsurprisingly, Mourinho's comments drew criticism that mostly focused on his tactical approach to the game. "We had a big game. against Liverpool and we came with high confidence to play this game, but Sevilla were better than us, so they deserved it". We still have the top 4 in the league to fight for and the FA Cup too so it's not the end of the world. Sevilla won but so did the side who tried to play the game. "You are going for a place in the Champions League quarterfinals and there was no desire, heavy legs".
