Souness: Mourinho failing to get best out of Man Utd players

Souness: Mourinho failing to get best out of Man Utd players

It has admittedly been increasingly hard to stay positive with him at United.

The longer it went scoreless, the more nervy it got inside Old Trafford and the more likely one goal from Sevilla would decide the game.

Ben Yedder all but confirmed Sevilla's place in the quarterfinals in the 78th minute when he headed a shot, which de Gea tried to save but ultimately pushed against the crossbar and watched as it bounced back over the goal line. The Spaniards had never won a UEFA Champions League match in England.

Nemanja Matic pulled no punches about United's tame performance.

Following the final whistle, Mourinho, with permission, entered the away dressing room to congratulate the visitors. There was Ashley Young on his honkers, looking spent.

Mourinho lost his cool with a Spanish reporter during a particularly prickly post-match press conference but kept his composure after giving his players a dressing-down.

The call will ultimately be made by Sessions because of McCabe's seniority, a person familiar with the matter said. The Wall Street Journal report was written by Devlin Barrett, who is now a reporter with The Washington Post .

"I sit in this chair twice in the Champions League and I knock out Man United at home at Old Trafford". So this is nothing new for this football club.

I would like to make it succinctly clear that this defeat doesn't mean the end of the world for us.

"We know the supporters are sad because of the result, we are sad too and we have to go back to winning ways and I hope the team reaction will be good", he said.

And Mourinho, speaking after the game, actually had the nerve to say this.

Is Mourinho really going to stay at United for a fourth or fifth season if his old nemesis Guardiola is still dominating? It is out here where United missed a great chance to impose themselves on the opposition team and score.

"We have to forget this".

"In the first half we played a good game apart from the last 30 metres", said Sevilla coach Vincenzo Montella. "They did that for the majority of the time".

"I don't remember a unsafe situation for them, it was a good controlled performance by them without any danger". Of course, the first goal always changes the direction of the game.

"Everything, everything together. Everybody spends money right, it's not just us, right?"

And it wasn't about to change for the sake of bringing in the Portuguese.

"I don't have regrets", the United boss.

This summer he is expected to target Shakthar Donetsk midfielder Fred, Tottenham centre-back Toby Alderweireld and Juventus left-back Sandro but it remains to be seen how far United will be prepared to back him.

And if there's one position they need an upgrade at, it's under center. "I think we still have a good defensive football team". Keenum finished the season with 3,547 yards passing to go with 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions.
