The red devils were losing 1-0 to Tuesday's second leg but lost 3-0 at Camp Nou and were eliminated from the UEFA Champions League.

Mourinho had already praised Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay for hitting Barça in the first leg, but he believes Solskjaer's approach to the second leg was the fall.

"Messi's position is easy to understand, but it's not easy to create a cage to control him," Mourinho told Russia Today, according to Sky Sports.

"He comes from the right, then he's in the middle, and then [Ivan] Rakitic goes to the right and lets him stay in the middle. Is very difficult.

"Manchester United in the first game, zonally they occupied this area very well – but I think in this match they started with a different perspective.

"In front of the defensive line was just Fred. This is the area where Messi comes to get the ball and when Messi has the ball … one, one, one … you're dead.

"That's why I've never liked individual man-to-man against Messi. Messi is a cage, you have to create a cage.

"But Barcelona is Barcelona, ​​they have better players than Manchester United and I think it's normal that they won."
