Mourinho: Anything is possible if United reach Champions League quarters

Mourinho: Anything is possible if United reach Champions League quarters

It is no overstatement that, if it wasn't for David De Gea's brilliance, United would have been at least a goal down coming into this leg. Sevilla were the better team in the first leg but they failed to take advantage of that superiority and now find themselves coming to Old Trafford needing to score at least one goal.

Mourinho's side are also in the Champions League and the FA Cup and Carrick has vowed to fight for his employers until the end of this season.

'I think it's pretty much already been said, to be honest with you, ' he replied when asked whether he was retiring.

"When you're in the last sixteen it looks really far, but in the last eight you start smelling the semi-finals".

"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".

The decision to not go looking for an away goal against a side that has lost heavily to the likes of Spartak Moscow, Eibar and Real Betis this season will come back to haunt Mourinho if United fail to progress.




The midfielder missed the 2-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday after suffering an injury in training on Friday.

"So imagine if we were knocked out - it would be considered a disaster, but for me it would be a disappointment". Consecutive Premier League wins against Crystal Palace, Chelsea and Liverpool have The Red Devils in second place of the standings, but now the team needs to switch the focus to the UEFA Champions League. It is a very important game for us.

The 36-year-old is the longest-serving player at the club, having joined from Tottenham in 2006 and gone on to win the Champions League and five Premier League titles, among many other trophies.

Pogba has been in and out of the side of late, for tactical reasons as well as injury problems.

"I don't know (if he can play), we don't know yet, but he trained a little bit after you left".
