'Narcissistic' Mourinho a bad fit for United - Dunphy

De Boer is worst manager in English premier league history- Mourinho

This was precisely what a heartbroken Sir Alex Ferguson had to face following United's 2-1 loss to Sevilla during their second leg which spelled their exit from Europe's highest competition this season.

Knowing they needed to score, United had a decent opening five minutes, but quickly regressed into a passive performance, which only was sparked into life when substitute Wissam Ben Yedder scored a quick fire brace.

Mourinho said at the end of December that the £300 million he has spent since becoming Man United manager in 2016 has 'not been enough', and he reiterated his desire to be given more backing in the transfer market again after the defeat last night.

Sevilla created history when they beat the Red Devils at Old Trafford to book their place in the quarter-finals of the competition.

And Lingard almost had an instant impact as he teed up Lukaku on the edge of the box, but the Belgian's effort drifted high and wide.

UP, Bihar bypoll results:SP-BSP leaves BJP stunned
Even if the BJP's defeat is not the direct result of this omission, it is bound to tighten Modi's grip over the party. In Gorakhpur , the BJP's tally was nearly 5.4 lakh votes, while the combined SP-BSP tally was just over 4 lakh.

Marco Verratti and Toni Kroos are both mentioned as possible signings, with the latter a potential makeweight in any deal that would see David de Gea depart for Real Madrid.

However, it was wayward finishing rather than the Spanish number one that prevented the visitors making the most of their ascendency for most of the match.

Franco Vazquez powered a shot over and Muriel angled an effort wide as Sevilla continued to prod.

Sanchez was disappointing throughout the defeat but lasted the 90 minutes, while Pogba was introduced on the hour mark for Marouane Fellaini.

However, even the Frenchman couldn't kickstart the hosts and they were eventually made to pay. The shot was well placed, and it was one of few shots that de Gea could not save.

Jesse Barba, 77, a neighbor of Herrera's, said he rarely saw her because "she was always helping out with her mother". A neighbor, Brandon Rendon, told Reuters the victim was in a wheelchair watering her grass before the blast occurred.

However, The Independent add that any potential deal is not close.

Yet, it appears United are about to buy more players for Mourinho to use as fall-guys for his bankrupt tactical approach.

But it was to little avail as United have now failed to reach the quarter-finals for four straight years.

And Simeone does not think it is fair for Sevilla's triumph to be judged in the context of Jose Mourinho's United side suffering a surprise Champions League exit in the round of 16.

The former Italy winger feels the Manchester United manager has come up against two of the best managers of the modern era in Pep Guardiola and Antonio Conte in England. By the midway point of the second half, Sevilla had grown into the game - Ever Banega and Steven Nzonzi controlling the midfield - and United's players knew they were in a precarious situation.
