The Portuguese shouldered the blame in front of his squad after the final whistle.
Just as the game between United and Sevilla was over, Jose Mourinho told his players in the dressing room it w as him to blame for the defeat, reveals Paul Hirst of the Times.
Some players were too shattered to contain emotions after the team had failed to fulfil the fans’ dreams of making it further in the Champions League. The pathetic sight, however, pleased Jose as he was glad to see the ‘caring’ reaction.
The boss is understood to have told the players: ”When we win, we all win, when we lose, I lose alone.”
He then walked to the away dressing room to congratulate Sevilla players on a deserved victory and received a round of applause from the visiting team.
United are now left with the FA Cup left to play as the journey re-starts already this Saturday against Brighton at home.
