Chippy Jose Mourinho: ‘Everybody spends money, right?’

Jose Mourinho says that “everything” has to change at Manchester United to make them successful in Europe again. United fell at the last-16 stage of the Champions League to Sevilla on Tuesday, losing 2-1 at Old Trafford after a 0-0 first-leg draw in Spain. Mourinho absolutely f***ed it with a negative team selection and approach after the impressive victory over Liverpool just three days prior. But the Portuguese has defended himself amid claims that his astronomical spending should result in better performance, stating that “everybody spends money”. Mourinho defended his side’s display and added: “I don’t think the performance was bad.” He was chippy when quizzed by Spanish-speaking reporters, with one asking if it was an acceptable performance by United given the difference in finance. “Are you really interested, being Spanish press, in the intricacies of our own season?” he told another when asked if being eliminated from the Champions League and Carabao Cup as well as falling short in the Premier League title race represented failure for United. The FA Cup is now the only silverware still up for grabs ahead of Saturday’s quarter-final against Brighton, but Mourinho did not regret his approach over the two legs against Sevilla. “I don’t have regrets,” the United boss. “I did my best, the players did their best. We tried, we lost and that’s football.” Asked what has to change now to get United into the top-eight teams in Europe, Mourinho retorted: “Everything. Everything together. “Everybody spends money, right? It is not just us, no? It’s not just changing for changing sake, it’s a natural process. “And we’re not the only team that invests money. All clubs invest money in players.” Sevilla’s investment is paltry by comparison, though, and the 2-1 win will go down in the club’s history. “I am very happy to win here in this special, historic place,” head coach Vincenzo Montella said after reaching the quarter-finals. “I am happy that the fans were here and that for the first time in 60 years we are in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, the players are happy in the dressing room they have Sevilla the club very firmly in their heart.” The post Chippy Jose Mourinho: ‘Everybody spends money, right?’ appeared first on Football365....
