Mourinho Makes Strange Man Utd Comparisons After UCL Exit

The Portuguese tactician's side lost 2-1 at home to the LaLiga club, who reached the quarter-final of the competition for the first time.

The hosts never really troubled the away side, and after the match, Mourinho seemingly tried to play down the significance of the defeat by pointing out that this not the first time United have been knocked out of the Champions League.

"I've sat in this chair twice before, with Porto (2004) – Manchester United out, with Real Madrid (2013) – Manchester United out, so this is nothing new for this football club," he said in a post-match press conference.

Mourinho's strange analysis of the game continued when he also compared United's Champions League knockout to bitter rivals Liverpool, who are still in the competition.

"Liverpool has the Champions League but they don't have the FA Cup," he added.

United's last realistic chance for silverware this season is the FA Cup, for which they will face Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday.
