Manchester United crashed out of the Champions League tonight after a late brace by Sevilla substitute Hassam Ben Yedder saw the Spanish side go through 2-1.

"I'm very, very happy, it's unbelievable we've won in this very special stadium and the first time in 60 years we're in the quarter-finals of the Champions League", Montella told reporters.

Four minutes later Yedder added a second goal, heading home a corner, and although Lukaku scored back for United, the damage had been done.

"We did our best, we tried, we lost, that's football", he said. "In the second half we were more clinical with Ben Yedder, he made the difference today".

Mourinho was philosophical about the defeat, telling reporters: "I don't think the performance was bad..."

"I have some very happy players who have got Sevilla in their soul and in their heart".

"We had good periods, we didn't have great control over the game, but I can't say there was anything wrong with my players and their intention to play". "I don't want to make a drama of it".
