Romelu Lukaku clarifies 'hiding' comments after Champions League exit

Man Utd Sevilla Jose Mourinho BT SPORTScholes could not explain Man Utd's defeat to Sevilla

"In the dressing room some people are disappointed with the result because we expected better from ourselves", Lukaku said.

Mourinho was curt with some journalists in the post-match press conference and attempted to downplay the surprise loss by bringing up the last-16 exits he masterminded from the away dugout at Old Trafford when managing Porto and Real Madrid. So this is nothing new for this football club. "I don't think we had control of the game because the opponent had that, but I can not say that my players had something wrong in terms of their attitude and their intention to play". "That's football. It's not the end of the world".

Reminding United of previous anguish is exactly what Mourinho should have been steering well clear of.

Questions will be asked as to why Mourinho switched around the team and formation from that game.

But beyond the specific complaints over Mourinho's approach against the Spaniards, the context in which the former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager operates makes it hard to see how his project will deliver a new era of glory at Old Trafford.

Ben Yedder's impact ultimately decided the game and Mourinho accepted his side had not done enough to break Sevilla down.

In the past he has resorted to goading fellow managers, shaming players publicly in order to motivate them and putting 10 players behind the ball in order to counter possession-based teams. They tried to do that and did that for the majority of the time.

They think his response was "embarrassing" and "idiotic".

.

As it was, Sevilla couldn't find the target with a slew of efforts from distance in the first half but, with Steven Nzonzi and Evert Banega controlling the midfield, United was not finding it easy. Yedder, who now has eight goals from seven games in the UEFA 0Champions League this season, should have claimed a hat-trick.

Just 87 seconds after coming off the bench, Ben Yedder was put through by Sarabia and sent a right-footed strike past De Gea. "I did my best, the players did their best".

And therein lies the kicker.

After the goals, Ben Yedder's former club, Toulouse, campaigned for him to be part of France's squad for friendlies later this month against Colombia and Russian Federation. Ben Yedder was the ideal player with which to exploit that.

Make no mistake: this defeat - the manner in which United went out of Europe with a whimper - followed by this quote will have severed the trust of many supporters in Mourinho for good. That's not a road he wants to travel down.
