Jose Mourinho's Infamous Football Heritage Rant Goes Viral Again
By Mike Parrott
Jose Mourinho's infamous 'football heritage' rant has gone viral again after Manchester United suffered another loss to Sevilla. Mourinho was manager of United at the time in 2018 when they lost to Sevilla in the UEFA Champions League round of 16.
United were incredibly unfortunate throughout after doubling Sevilla's shots-on-target and controversially having a penalty not awarded when Bruno Fernandes was taken down.
However, this means that Ole Gunnar Soslkjaer continues his managerial career at United without a trophy, albeit finishing third when projected seventh, as well as three semi-final appearances this season.
The last time United played Sevilla, they were also knocked out, back in 2018 in the UEFA Champions League round of 16, losing 2-1 on aggregate.
The tie is infamously remembered though for Jose Mourinho's delusional rant that probably led to his sacking six months later.

In the now dubbed 'football heritage' rant, Mourinho rolled off United's past achievements in the Champions League against his own, rather than blaming himself for not taking United as far as David Moyes and his very own successor did the very next year in the Champions League.
The former Special One also ranted about how a lot of the Sevilla players would be in his United team.
With players such as Clement Lenglet and Wissam Ben Yedder you would have to agree. However, Mourinho had bought players such as Romelu Lukaku, Eric Bailly, Alexis Sanchez and Nemanja Matic who started the game, with only Marcus Rashford and David De Gea starting both ties.
United put up a much better effort yesterday and was ultimately a loss of their own making due to individual defensive mistakes and lack of clinical finishing.
But Mourinho's 'football heritage' rant will go down in history as arguably the moment Mourinho stopped being a top manager and if anything, became a 'dinosaur' in modern-day football.
