Juventus brutally mocked Manchester United on social media after Erik ten Hag’s men crashed out of the Europa League at the hands of Sevilla on Thursday evening.
Sevilla secured their place in the semi-finals by delivering a decisive blow to Manchester United, triumphing with a resounding 3-0 victory in the second-leg quarter-final encounter held at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan stadium in Spain.
United, who squandered a 2-0 advantage in the first-leg encounter at Old Trafford, found themselves trailing just ten minutes into the second-leg match due to a mistake by Harry Maguire.
Sevilla's lead was further extended early in the second half when Loic Bade scored with a looping header from an Ivan Rakitic corner, leaving David de Gea helpless to stop it.
David de Gea's error led to Sevilla's third goal as he rushed out of his box and made a poor clearance, leaving the United net unguarded for En-Nesyri to slot the ball home from 35 yards out.
Sevilla will now face Juventus in the Europa League semi-finals, as Juventus defeated Sporting CP in the quarter-finals on Thursday.
After their victory, Juventus took to TikTok to humorously mock United, posting a parody clip from the movie "Four Lions" released in 2010.
In the parody clip shared on TikTok, the crests of the Europa League semi-finalists - Juventus, Sevilla, and Bayer Leverkusen - are seen celebrating while United's crest is replaced by the character Barry from the movie "Four Lions," representing United as the only team not progressing to the semi-finals.
Speaking after their defeat to Sevilla, Christian Eriksen insisted that United must change their “mentality” ahead of the FA Cup semi-final clash against Brighton on Sunday.
“A lot of things happened,” he told BT Sport.
“We didn’t really give them a game from the first minute and we gave them a lot of opportunities to finish us off.
“We lost a bit of our coolness, we made more mistakes than we do usually and the whole team could not catch up with mistakes our teammates made.
“If you give away goals like we did, you lose, it’s nothing to do with the atmosphere.
“Our own game was not strong enough. It’s football, sometimes you have good days, sometimes you have bad days and it was a bad day. Luckily, we have a game in four days.
“Every football player makes mistakes, they punished us straight away. It’s how we bounce back and today we were not strong enough to bounce back from the mistakes.
“The mentality has to change, we know it will be a completely different opponent and different style so from tomorrow we will be focusing on Brighton.”
