MANCHESTER UNITED’s defeat to Sevilla marks the beginning of the end of Jose Mourinho’s Old Trafford tenure.
That’s the view of talkSPORT’s Jason Cundy, who thinks the Manchester United manager is on borrowed time at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils’ hopes of European glory were ended as Sevilla beat them 2-1 last night courtesy of a brilliant brace from substitute Ben Yedder.
Manchester United were well off the pace and their timid and turgid display has led to calls for Mourinho to go.
And Cundy thinks the result is so bad that Mourinho’s time at the club is set to start unravelling.
“This is the beginning of the end for Jose at Old Trafford,” he told talkSPORT.
“You’ll go back to this result in years to come and say this was the beginning of the end.
“He’s been there for two years, he’s been brought in to win the Premier League and the Champions League and he’s not got close.
“This year they had one of the easiest ties in the group for any English side and they had to get through out of the last-16 against Sevilla.
“This is catastrophic for Jose, it’s one of the worst results in his career.”
Mourinho offered a bizarre explanation for United’s defeat after the game by saying: “I told you yesterday that it would be disappointment if we would lose the match.
“I don’t want to make a drama of it, we don’t have time. We have a match on Saturday, we have no time to be sad for more than 24 hours and that’s football.
“That’s not the end of the world.
“I sit in this chair twice in the Champions League and I knock out Man United at home at Old Trafford.
“I sit in this chair with Porto, Man United out. I sit in the chair with Real Madrid, Man United out.
“So, I don’t think it is something new for the club and of course being Manchester United manager and losing a Champions League tie at home is a disappointment.”
