The Red Devils were knocked out of the Champions League after losing 2-1 to Sevilla in their second leg Last 16 tie on Tuesday.

There was a lot of backlash from pundits and former players for Mourinho and some of his players following the loss.

"I am not going to run away or disappear or to cry because I heard a few boos, I'm not going to disappear from the tunnel, running immediately, the next match I will be the first to go out. I am not afraid of my responsibilities," Mourinho was quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.
"In the last seven years the worst position of Manchester City in the Premier League was fourth, in the last seven years Manchester City was champions twice and if you want to say three times, they were second twice.
"That's heritage. Do you know what is also heritage? Is that Nicolas Otamendi, Kevin De Bruyne, Fernandinho, David Silva, Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero, they are investments from the past, not from the last two years, do you know how many of United players that left the club last season? See where they play, how they play, if they play.
"For some reason you go to the Champions League quarter-final like today and there are four clubs that are always there, always there. 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.
"The good thing for me and the amazing feeling for me is that I am exactly on the same page as the owners, as Mr [Ed] Woodward, Mr [Richard] Arnold, we are on exactly the same page, we agree on everything, on the investments, that we have what we have, the investments that we are going to do will be season after season, we are exactly on the same page, so life is good.
"I have an amazing job to do. Yesterday I met a new person we have working in the club in a different area that came from another club and I ask why did you decide to come. The person told me I did a fantastic job in another club and at this club I have a huge job and I come for the challenge.
"Well done, my decision was based on the same thing, I could be in another country with the league in the pocket, I am here and I am going to be here and no way am I going to change my mentality. I don't know if you know the expression but there is a code that I like, 'Every wall is a door'."

Jose is a good coach. He has managed in 2 seasons to bring the trophy filling at Old Trafford. He has managed to lure in high profile players within the team. The only problem I have with him is his arrogance. I wish he can learn to adjust with new dynamics of football holistically. Player management and tactical adjustment. His arrogance turns to be his biggest enemy
