Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone believes Sevilla's stunning Champions League win at Old Trafford has been overshadowed by Manchester United crashing out of the tournament. This is a team to build success and win titles orchestrated by the 3-time Champions League victor Jose Mourinho.
In freakish fashion, Mourinho seemed to be taking credit for having knocked Manchester United out of the Champions League for the third time.
"I do not care who we draw next in the competition". "Your job [in the media] is to get everybody to suffer". It is not something new for the club. However, they were possibly an attempt to bring some realism to a fan base that demands not only success, but stylish and attacking glory.
"You know what a guy said?"
Ben Yedder put Sevilla in front two minutes later when he blasted into the bottom corner before heading in a second shortly after.
With a 2-2 aggregate scoreline, the capital club advanced via the away goal rule after scoring an away goal in the 2-1 loss in Ukraine. And, having beaten Ajax in the last 32, their secondary journey ended in the round of 16 after being played off the pitch in two legs against a vibrant Athletic Bilbao.
So far, some English teams have struggled at home in the Champions League knockout rounds and Wenger admitted that serves as a reminder that Arsenal can't relax just yet despite their lead. I sit in this chair with Porto (in 2004), Man United out.
Scholes also said that Saturday's victory over Liverpool had an element of luck, that United "got away with it" and that more money for new transfers won't solve their problems.
"Last night was bad and we must all reflect and take note so it doesn't happen again". Because if they concede a goal they know they're almost out, and if you play at home it's very hard. They're frustrated with him, they think he got the tactics wrong, but what's the Plan B, get Pep Guardiola in?
"They're a decent team, they are not a team that frighten you. Manchester City have a better team than Manchester United at the moment, I don't think anybody denies that". Like Pogba, he is an undoubted talent who just isn't delivering for Mourinho, adding to the headaches, and question marks, facing the manager.
The mounting evidence suggests it is Mourinho's failure to harness the best from his attacking players that is to blame, rather than a clutch of stars going off the boil. "It makes me happy to see the younger players coming through - and trying to make United big".
