Manchester United were well beaten by Barcelona in the Champions League after they were silenced 3-0 at the Camp Nou on Tuesday, April 16.
Messi's five-star performance gave the Red Devils no chance in turning around the first leg defeat at Old Trafford.
And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer helplessly watched his team lose to the Spanish champions and current La Liga leaders.
And with United's Champions League exit, fans across the globe commented on social media to vent their frustrations claiming that United's lacklustre performance was proof that Mourinho was right.
"Mourinho was 100% right about this defense," said one disgruntled Red Army loyalist.
Barcelona maintained their impressive unbeaten home record to United, dismantling their English opponents with ease.
"Mourinho was profoundly disrespected at Manchester United," said another.
"Mourinho actually took this United team to second in the Premier Legaue and he called it his best achievement ever. Maybe he wasn't lying," a fan named James exclaimed on Twitter.
