Jose Mourinho attempts to play down Manchester United exit

Transfer report Manchester United want to sign Chelsea star Willian in £60million summer deal

Two goals in four minutes from Sevilla substitute Wissam Ben Yedder were enough to knock Manchester United out of the Champions League on a famous night for the Spanish side at Old Trafford.

Ben Yedder had been on the pitch just 87 seconds when he controlled a smart pass from Banega, took a touch to steady himself and drilled a fine finish inside De Gea's left-hand post.

And supporters were not in a forgiving mood after the game, slamming the midfielder for costing United the tie.

"We had good periods, we didn't have great control over the game, but I can't say there was anything wrong with my players and their intention to play", he said.

An abject United performance got the outcome it deserved as Sevilla kicked on after a solid first-half display, Frenchman Ben Yedder coming off the bench to secure a 2-1 win and render Romelu Lukaku's late goal pointless as the Spaniards progressed from the last-16 at the fourth time of asking.

Carrick is expected to be part of the Manchester United coaching staff from next season and May insisted that it is important that the Red Devils keep hold of the former Tottenham man. I don't have regrets, I did my best, the players tried their best.

At the other end, Lukaku set Jesse Lingard up from the right and the winger fired across the keeper, forcing an alert fingertip save from Rico in the 52nd minute.

The Bosnian forward beat the offside trap by running onto Kevin Strootman's through ball and then prodded the ball past the onrushing Andriy Pyatov from the edge of the area.

Mourinho's gamble on Fellaini appeared to have largely backfired as he failed to impose his physical presence on Sevilla's ball players in midfield. "That is where I am at", he told reporters, as quoted by BBC Football. A 0-0 draw away from home, without an away goal scored, is no longer a positive result in elite European competition because most teams will attack away from home in the return leg in the hope of gaining the upper hand.

"I don't have a preferred opponent: they are all strong teams, but we will play to win against anyone". It did mean a lot to big teams even as recently as in the 90's.
