Jose Mourinho's Thrown His Players Under The Bus - Former Premier League Defender

Lukaku hit back at the claims on his Instagram account

The 55-year-old read out a list of statistics from a notebook in a rant that lasted 12-and-a-half minutes.

United were dumped out of the Champions League by Sevilla on Tuesday and Mourinho hit out at the club's lack of investment afterwards and questioned the Red Devils' lack of success in the competition in the past.

The Sun UK reports that the Portuguese manager has vowed to try again to sign the Chelsea star and is open to meeting Chelsea's £60m valuation.

Most sensible Reds were not expecting to win the Champions League this season, and a Round of 16 exit would not have been totally surprising either, had the team been drawn against one of the tournament favorites.

McTominay and company are next in action against Brighton on Saturday, as they reconvene their FA Cup campaign.

United's display lacked the attributes that saw them beat bitter rivals Liverpool 2-1 on Saturday.

Mourinho conceded that, with free-spending Manchester City on course to win the title by a record margin, it will be hard for United to challenge them in the short term.

Having been outspent by City in four of the last five seasons and Guardiola inheriting a squad with far greater quality than Mourinho in the first place, it's no surprise that City are ahead.

Villanova-the nation's winningest team over the last four years-is, and it's easy to lose sight of just what an anomaly they are. The 2018 ACC champions have what it takes to buckle down on the defensive end and pull out stops when they need them most.

"I say to the fans that the fans are the fans and have the right to their opinions and reactions".

"I prefer to say that Matic and Lukaku are performing at a high level from day one until the last match". In Sevilla, there are many players that would play in my team.

"Do you know what is also heritage?"

"In seven years with four different managers, once not qualifying for Europe, twice out in the group phase and the best was the quarter-final, this is football heritage (of United)", Mourinho said. 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. 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 am not afraid of my responsibilities.

'I said we are not one of the top teams, not one of the favourites to win.

He told MUTV, "Of course everybody is sad, as I told the players in the dressing room, I'm happy with this sadness, I'm really happy with that".

By no means a stranger to United given his days with Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City in the Premier League, but N'Zonzi's talents have arguably only been truly admired since moving to Spain.

"It's really good for me to be trusted by the manager".
