first_img“I’ve sat in this chair twice before with Porto, Manchester United out, and Real Madrid, Manchester United out, so I don’t think it’s anything new for the club,” said Mourinho, who bristled at questions over his tactical approach.“I don’t want to make a drama of it. We have no time to be sad for more than 24 hours, that’s football. It’s not the end of the world.”The visitors were deserving winners as they controlled the game throughout, but had to wait for Ben Yedder’s introduction as a substitute 18 minutes from time to add a clinical finish by taking his Champions League tally for the season to eight goals in seven appearances.Ben Yedder put Sevilla in front two minutes later when he blasted into the bottom corner before heading in a second shortly after. “In the first half we played a good game apart from the last 30 metres,” said Sevilla coach Vincenzo Montella.“In the second half we were more clinical with Ben Yedder, he made the difference today.”Mourinho sprang a surprise before kick-off by recalling Marouane Fellaini at the expense of Pogba, who had also been dropped for the first game.Sevilla dominated the vast majority of the first leg only to be denied by some stunning saves from David de Gea.However, it was wayward finishing rather than the Spanish number one that prevented the visitors making the most of their ascendency for most of the match.Indeed, of Sevilla’s 10 efforts on goal in the first period only one weak Muriel effort forced De Gea into making a save.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 Romelu Lukaku reduced United’s arrears, but it was too little, too late with Mourinho’s decision to once again drop Paul Pogba certain to be scrutinised.center_img Manchester, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho insisted European disappointment is nothing new for the English giants after losing 2-1 to Sevilla at Old Trafford to crash out of the Champions League by the same scoreline on aggregate.Wissam Ben Yedder struck twice in four second-half minutes on Tuesday to send Sevilla into the quarter-finals for the first time in 60 years as United suffered a first European home defeat since Alex Ferguson’s Champions League farewell in 2013.Mourinho was on the winning side that night as Real Madrid manager and also sent United out of the last 16 when Porto boss in 2004.last_img read more

first_img England international Gemma Clews has launched her season by completing a hat trick of wins in the Delamere Comboy Scratch Trophy. The competition is special to Clews because it’s played at her home course, Delamere Forest, Cheshire, and because it remembers Carol Comboy, who was a member of the club for 55 years, an outstanding county player, a Curtis Cup captain and president of the former English Ladies’ Golf Association, the LGU and of Cheshire. “I definitely like to win this one,” said the 21-year-old. “It means a lot because it’s at Delamere and because Carol did so much for golf.” So far, Clews’s name is the only one on the trophy, having won it since the inaugural event in 2013. That year, she shot five-under in the first round but still had to end her second round birdie, eagle, to win on countback. Last year, she won by a stroke when bad weather reduced the competition to 18 holes. This year, she had to see off a challenge from fellow international Hollie Muse (West Lancashire) but she kept her firm grip on the trophy with a 36-hole score of two-under par – and a three shot winning margin. Once again, the weather was challenging. “It was really tough, it was very windy then we had hail and rain – and a stop for thunder and lightning. The weather really tried to do us again, but we managed to get finished,” said Clews. Both she and Muse were tied with level par scores of 73 after the morning round and they both staged a charge in the afternoon round, with Clews reaching the 11th tee in five-under and Muse in one-under.  Clews had six birdies in the first 10 holes but her run came to an end on the 11th where her ball plugged in a bunker. She bogeyed three consecutive holes, before getting back on track and returning a second round score of two-under 71. Muse’s challenge faded on the 15th where she had a double bogey but she came back well to finish with a birdie. Third place was taken by 15-year-old Ebonie Lewis (Bristol & Clifton) from England Golf’s South West regional U16 girls’ squad. She had scores of 74, 76.
