'No excuses' as Matic looks to move on from Sevilla defeat

Mourinho's side put in a lacklustre performance on Tuesday as Sevilla won 2-1 on the night and on aggregate in the last 16, despite United being overwhelming favourites after the first leg. Rio Ferdinand described the performance as lethargic and added that Alexis Sánchez looked a shadow of his former self while Paul Scholes called for the Chilean to be dropped.

"Of course, we are not happy because we are out of the Champions League", Matic said.

There was no shortage of criticism of Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho after Tuesday's last 16 exit from the Champions League at the hands of Sevilla and his nearly blase reaction to the loss did little to temper it. "I don't think they knew too much about Sevilla, I think they expected United to go at them and when that didn't happen there was like a hush of "oh no, what's happening here", and that transmitted into the players and maybe vice versa as well". Supporters were hopeful that the Red Devils could advance, but they conceded more goals than they could score. "That's football, it's not the end of the world", Mourinho said.

After a goalless first half in which the Ukrainians held their own, the Gialorrossi upped the tempo in the second half and scored the winning goal on 52 minutes through their top striker Edin Dzeko.

Despite that run of form at home Sevilla were able to turn United over with relative ease, with many seeing United's lack of attacking intent as the reason for the Spanish side's dominance.

Their last remaining hopes of silverware come in the FA Cup, making Saturday evening's quarter-final against Brighton all the more important. They played well in the first half without creating many unsafe situations.


His claims that the exit is not "something new for the club" has not gone down well with many the fans, especially given his side's negativity over both legs against Sevilla. After that, we were on the edge and it was really hard.

"It is an incredible moment and a privilege for us as players to enter the history of this club", Lenglet told Cadena Cope.

Mourinho finished by insisting losing is part of the natural process, and when asked what needs to change, he said: Everything, everything together. In addition to all those great attacking players they already have, just give Mourinho another couple of hundred million to spend, never mind coaching players. "It is fantastic to come to a stadium like this and make it to the last eight of the Champions League".

"Surely the manager must see Sanchez's not been good enough".

The Telegraph called United's display "embarrassingly inept".
