I just don't understand the mentality of the players. If you can't get confidence after beating your biggest rivals then you probably shouldn't be a professional footballer.
Mourinoh should shoulder more of the blame than the players imo. United were sitting back from the off, rarely had more than 3 players getting into Sevilla's box, and that's because of his instructions. His teams always play shite football but the argument is he gets results (as with Liverpool the other day), but when it doesn't work it's embarrassing.
Martial and Mata should be starting these matches.
thing is, even with questionable tactics, Utd looked completely off the pace: no bite to their defending, no whip to their passing or any accuracy at all. mystifying how slow they looked and how easily Sevilla played through them to get into the final 3rd.
They're not a bad side, beat Liverpool in the Europa final a few seasons back. This should be a wake up call for the English clubs, they're not as good as they think they are. Pundits and papers are forever underestimating foreign clubs.
