Sevilla stun Man Utd to reach Champions League quarterfinals

Alexis Sanchez

A needlessly conservative performance from Manchester United was punished with embarrassing Champions League elimination as Jose Mourinho's side fell to a sloppy 2-1 defeat against Sevilla at Old Trafford on Tuesday night. The loss meant that Sevilla qualified to the quarterfinal stages of the tournament for the first time in 60 years.

Whoever suggested Mourinho to be a Manchester United coach in the first place needs a sack.

Manchester United's Serbian midfielder Nemanja Matic (L) and Manchester United's Ivorian defender Eric Bailly react after Sevilla scored their first goal during a last 16 second leg UEFA Champions League football match between Manchester United and Sevilla at Old Trafford in Manchester.

Afterwards Mourinho gave a prickly press conference during which he claimed losing in the Champions League was nothing new to Manchester United, given he oversaw their demise when he was in charge of Real Madrid and Porto.

Next up for United is a quarter-final FA Cup encounter with Brighton & Hove Albion at Old Trafford on Saturday. We have no time to be sad for more than 24 hours, that's football. "But I believed in myself, believed in the team and we showed we are a great team".

"I think we played well at home, but we didn't score that goal, so we knew it was going to be very hard here at this stadium", said N'Zonzi.

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.

What was most odd about his postgame commentary however, was his remark on how United crashing out of the Champions League is "not something new", as he referenced the fact that two of his former teams eliminated United.

Jose Mourinho had clearly sent out his team with a cautious game plan.

The Frenchman only came on as a substitute but did enough (or didn't do enough) to frustrate supporters even more than they already were.
