Mourinho And Pogba Slammed As Man United Thrown Out Of Europe

Manchester United gambled everything on getting a result at home and it miserably failed. They took a 0-0 draw back to Old Trafford, then Jose Mourinho's men limped out of the Champions League as they fell to a 2-1 loss against Sevilla.

It was the Man United boss who bore most of the criticism, as the home side lacked any real offensive strategy for the bulk of the game. Only after Sevilla had scored twice did the Reds look to push forward, but that brief drive was too late to salvage their European future.

Paul Pogba did not start the game and when he came on failed to impress.

Under United, Mourinho has never inspired flowing football but the constant defense for his supporters has been results. As recently as the Liverpool clash United enjoyed just 32% possession yet secured a 2-1 victory. However, after falling against a Sevilla side who just recently lost 5-1 against Eibar, results will not strengthen his case. Out of the Champions League, out of the title race and for the second year in a row their player of the season has been their goalkeeper.

Mourinho did win two trophies last year and the side are still on course for second in the Premier League, but United fans have been known to demand productive football, famously chanting "attack, attack, attack" under Van Gaal. Once again, United failed to do that.
