Jose Mourinho's unbelievable speech in Man Utd press conference

Man Utd Sevilla

The Spaniard keeps the ball moving efficiently through the final third, popping up all over the pitch to pick out teammates, and with Brighton's defence - the ninth best in the Premier League this season - set to sit back and look to frustrate the hosts, his deft touch could be exactly what Mourinho needs to break the deadlock early on.

He then listed United's finishes in the Premier League, clearly annoyed at comments that his style was not suited to United's "heritage".

Mourinho will be charged with bridging the gap next season.

Ozil was a part of the Werder Bremen side that beat Mourinho's Inter Milan 2-1 in the Champions League in 2008 and Ozil reflected: "Following the game, Inter's coach got a bit of a roasting from the German media".

"With high confidence we come to play this game, but today they played better than us and they deserved (to win)". 'Other clubs are not ready to win. One thing is to go for the jugular and another is to build a different process. We had unsafe situations in the first half, a good start in the second half and chances to score.

"All tactical preferences aside, it is hard not to conclude that this United team are better than that, they have more invention, more drive, more joy in their football than they were allowed to show over 180 guileless minutes", he wrote. It's as simple as that.

Mourinho arrived at Friday's news conference with a neat piece of green paper underneath his diary. It is part of a £615 million outlay in the five years since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, while City have splashed out £785m in the same time period.

Whatever he truly meant, one wonders whether the manner of Manchester United's defeat to Sevilla in the Champions League's Round of 16 has hurt him more deeply than he cares to admit.

The Special One in his 12-minute address lashed out on Manchester United players and issued indirect warning while praising some of them.

Barcelona is always there in the past seven, eight years, Real Madrid, Juventus, Bayern Munich and then of course appear now and again, another club like my Inter, like some other clubs like Monaco last season, but the ones that are always there is for some reason and the good thing for me and the fantastic feeling for me is that I am exactly on the same page as the owners, as Mr Woodward, Mr Arnold.

"I don't think the performance was bad".

Manchester United provisional squad: De Gea, Romero, Pereira, Valencia, Darmian, Shaw, Young, Lindelof, Smalling, Bailly, Matic, Carrick, Pogba, Fellaini, McTominay, Mata, Lingard, Martial, Sanchez, Rashford, Lukaku, Ibrahimovic.

"I am alive", he told reporters, as quoted via the club's website.

But two quickfire goals from Wissam Ben Yedder in the second half secured Sevilla a famous 2-1 win at Old Trafford. We're out to a team that knocked out Atletico Madrid in two legs.

Had United gone on the attack and lost, while plenty would have moaned that Mourinho should have stuck to his principles and seen out a narrow win, because football fans are fickle like that, many would have appreciated seeing the team give it a real go.

'Obviously Real Madrid had the nucleus of players of a really high level, ' he added.

See where they play, how they play, if they play. I can not name them.

"I'm not saying [we will never catch up]".

Yet they failed to make it into the final eight of the Champions League, beaten by Sevilla, who are the club with the lowest revenue remaining in the tournament.

United are in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup and that, having won the EFL Cup and Europa League last season, suggests he has restored something of a winning mentality.

'Players have to learn how to cope with that level of expectation and that level of pressure.

His defensive tactics in big games have become a source of frustration for United supporters, even when they have been successful.

"So life is good".
