Manchester United fans baffled by Jose Mourinho’s tactics vs Sevilla

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United fans were left absolutely baffled by their manager’s tactics against Sevilla in the knockout stages of the Champions League.

Jose Mourinho couldn’t have gotten things more wrong than he did at Old Trafford with his side crashing out against the Spanish team.

Many expected United to cruise through to the quarter finals but it appeared a job too difficult to complete for the starting XI.

Mourinho had the perfect opportunity to maintain the same team that blew away Liverpool just days earlier but chopped and changed his line-up much to the surprise of supporters.

The Portuguese manager will surely have no excuses for what fans were forced to witness over the two legs against the poor La Liga team.

On the bright side of things Romelu Lukaku continued his fine form by grabbing his team a single goal to make it all slightly less embarrassing.

Sevilla eventually ran out 2-1 winners but it was the Belgian’s effort that gave the Red Devils some hope before time ran out.

Lukaku was of course guilty of missing a couple of opportunities as some of his teammates did but he can at least walk off the pitch with his head held high.

Other than the goal, his work rate and hold up play were brilliant once more as he continues to develop into a more complete striker.

Jose though has plenty to think about after losing against the Spanish side who were there for the taking at Old Trafford.
