Brutal: Jose Mourinho and Paul Scholes react to United’s defeat against Sevilla

JOSE MOURINHO says his players are sad in the dressing room after Manchester United crashed out of the Champions League to Sevilla.

Mourinho said: “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.

“That’s football, we lost, but tomorrow is another day and Saturday is another match.

“I’m pleased the players aren’t hiding their sadness, but we have no time for drama.”

MANCHESTER UNITED legend Paul Scholes has torn into Jose Mourinho’s side following their shock Champions League exit tonight.

Sevilla surprisingly beat Manchester United 2-1 in their Champions League last-16 second-leg clash at Old Trafford.

A second-half brace from substitute Wissam Ben Yedder was enough to see off the Red Devils at the first knockout stage.

Scholes says United lacked desire and energy and claimed it was a difficult match to watch.

He has also criticised United for their performance in the first leg, which ended 0-0.

“He likes to play on the counter-attack and use his pace,” Scholes said of Jose Mourinho.

“It was very difficult watching that, it was difficult watching the first game.

“There’s no desire, no energy, no speed about the team.

“I can’t explain it, it’s unexplainable. It will be interesting to hear what the manager says.

“You go back to the first game, the modern games now is teams go to places and try to score goals.

“United went there and didn’t even try to win the game or try to score a goal.”
