Scott McTominay: 'My Manchester United progress down to Jose Mourinho'

Man Utd Alexis Sanchez Paul Pogba Scott McTominay

Mourinho will be charged with bridging the gap next season.

That did not go down well and he came in for criticism, but the 55-year-old hit back in Friday's news conference.

Addressing the fans' anger, he said: "I say to the fans that the fans are the fans and have the right to their opinions and reactions, but there is something that I used to call football heritage". Some they get away with, because they get a win.

"For me, I don't know if you know the expression, I don't know if the translation to England makes you understand, but there is quote that I like which is something like "in every wall is a door". Other clubs are not ready to win.

'One thing is to go for the jugular and another is to build in a different process.

"We should have done much better". If they keep investing the same or more than us, it's hard. It's as simple as that.

Tuesday's second-leg performance at Old Trafford was poor. It is part of a £615 million outlay in the five years since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, while City have splashed out £785m in the same time period.

The Red Devils have ousted Derby, Yeovil and Huddersfield without conceding a goal in the competition already this term and Jose Mourinho's men have shipped just four home goals in 13 fixtures when excluding the Big Six and European encounters this season.

"He gave the ball away so often and his manager has to see that in the 10 games he has played, he has not been good", said the ever blunt Scholes. I can not be in competition, go there and say we have no chance.

It is believed the manager told his players that "when we win, we all win, when we lose, I lose alone".

In an impassioned and wide-ranging confrontation with journalists ahead of the FA Cup quarter-final against Brighton and Hove Albion, Mourinho made no attempt to hide his disgust at those who underestimated the Copa del Rey finalists, Sevilla having won 2-1 at Old Trafford on Tuesday to progress to the last eight, where they will face Bayern Munich.

"The good thing for me, and the fantastic feeling for me, is that I am exactly on the same page as the owners, as Mr (Ed) Woodward, Mr (Richard) Arnold, we are on exactly the same page, we agree on everything, on the investments, we are exactly on the same page, so life is good", he said.

Mourinho, though, insists United did not deserve their tag as favourites, and claimed a number of Sevilla players are better than his own. "I was a footballer for 22 years and it still makes me unbelievably proud to have achieved what I did with United and of course being given the opportunity to captain my country".

That run includes their meeting in the 1983 Cup Final that United won 4-0 after a replay.

"Hopefully, we're in the league in the next two years but I'm extremely proud. We are knocked out by a team that is brilliant in their approach for many years, with their scouting system".

The race for Champions League qualification continues - they are among the four teams battling for three spots behind City - but the FA Cup has also suddenly become a priority.

@ManUtd forward line should be scary to play against....the team ain't set up at times to get the best out of them. I can not name them.

He might argue that he is exactly who he said he was and that he is doing exactly the job he was expected to do.

The Frenchman is expected to keep his place on Sunday against a unsafe Leicester side who have the luxury of prioritising the Cup as they lie eighth in the Premier League, outside the race for Europe or against relegation.

He explained "football heritage", saying United have only reached the Champions League quarter-finals once since losing the 2011 final.
