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 one-nil victory over 10-man Shakhtar Donetsk marks the first time since 2008, the Italian side have gone beyond the round of 16.More news: New Splinter Cell Game Spotted on Amazon Ahead of Announcement
Jose Mourinho has spent more on just six transfers since taking over at Manchester United than Sevilla's whole squad is worth. They let the game go until a very risky period for us, which they did, and they scored a goal. "So this is nothing new for this football club" - which many Red Devils' fans deemed unacceptable.
The only trophy that the side might now claim is the FA Cup, making Saturday's quarter-final at home to Brighton a must-win game for Mourinho. I am the same but no time for drama because Saturday we have another match'. He said United looked like a team full of "strangers".More news: Carlos Hyde to sign with Cleveland Browns
After eliminating AGF in the 1958 European Cup, Sevilla lost to eventual champion Real Madrid 8-0 in the first leg of the quarterfinals at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, when Alfredo Di Stefano scored four goals.
Having a 0-0 draw from the first leg in Spain, United would have been confident of getting the result they needed to advance last night.More news: Keenum Preparing to Sign with Denver
His approach isn't pragmatic because a pragmatic manager treats a game on its merits - if a match is there to be won, he'll utilise the talents of his team to exploit a weakness in the opposition. Everything produced by the United forwards against Sevilla was improvised and off the cuff, and even when they win they're stodgy in attack. With the quality that we have in the team, I think that we should have gone through. "We played a team decorated with big-money signings and superstars and we were better". You are going for a place in the Champions League quarter-final and there was no desire, heavy legs.
