Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has come out to make an inspirational comments ahead of their second-leg clash against Sevilla in the Champions League round of 16 tie.
United played a goalless draw against Sevilla in Spain in their first leg meeting, and now need an outright victory to enable them progress to the quarter-final stage of the tournament.
Mirror Sport reported the Portuguese manager to say:
“I think we’re not one of the best teams in the competition,” “But when a team arrives in the last eight, anything can happen.
“When you’re in the last sixteen it looks really far, but in the last eight you start smelling the semi-finals.
“When a team gets into the last eight, the feeling is you are among the best, but anything can happen.
”If we go through to the quarter-finals, it doesn’t matter the opponent, it will always be one of the big names in European football, but we’ll try.”
United are now in a vulnerable situation, leaving them to face the away goal rule if they concede a single goal against Sevilla at Old Trafford.
