Mourinho reacts to Manchester United shock exit in UCL - FCNaija

Jose Mourinho shockingly appeared to troll his own club following their Champions League ouster at the hands of Sevilla on Tuesday night.

Manchester United were beaten 2-1 at Old Trafford by the Spanish club, which saw them exit the competition at the round of 16 stage, but Mourinho’s post-match comments appears to be taking a swipe at his side, suggesting it is not new for the club to be eliminated at this stage.

He cited the times he knocked United out of the Champions League as an opposing manager, first with Porto and then with Real Madrid.

“I've sat in this chair twice before, with Porto — Man Utd out, with Real Madrid — Man Utd out, so this is nothing new for this football club,” he said.

Wissam Ben Yedder scored twice before Romelu Lukaku bagged a consolation for the hosts, meaning United exited courtesy of a 2-1 aggregate scoreline.

Mourinho made his first major mark on the European stage with a shock victory as Porto manager at Old Trafford at the last-16 stage in 2004.

He then dumped them out of the competition when he was Real Madrid manager in the same round in the 2012-13 season. That was Sir Alex Ferguson's last European action prior to his retirement.
