Jose Mourinho’s reluctant return to the Europa League ended in embarrassment as Tonny Vilhena fired Feyenoord to a 1-0 win over Manchester United in their Group A opener in Rotterdam.
For a man with a keen eye on his position in the football hierarchy, competing in the Europa League for the first time in 13 years was an unappetising prospect for Mourinho and his players seemed equally uninspired as a much-changed United line-up succumbed to Vilhena’s late strike at De Kuip.
Here are the best Twitter reactions from United’s poor performance in Rotterdam:

Our performance today is a clear resemblance of the Van Gaal era. We've been really poor as a whole. Disappointing is an understatement.— ㅤㅤㅤ (@Pogbaganda) September 15, 2016
