Mourinho on who he wants Man Utd to face in Champions League quarter-finals
After sealing a quarter-finals berth in spectacular fashion against Paris Saint Germain, Jose Mourinho has revealed that he would want his former club, Manchester United to face another English team possibly Manchester City.
United overturned a 2-0 deficit first leg loss that they suffered at home to beat Paris Saint Germain 3-1 with a stoppage-time goal by Marcus Rashford from the penalty spot. The Red Devils became the first club in the history of the Champions League to overcome a 2-0 home deficit and proceed to the next round. All four of the English teams have proceeded to the quarterfinals of the tournament for the first time in a decade.
Speaking as a guest on Russian programme RT, Mourinho revealed who he would like to see Manchester United face, "I would like English teams to play against each other, without any kind of preference.But I would do two matches between English teams, which would mean two teams would be in the semi-finals.
“I think if the draw gives something like Manchester City versus Manchester United, or Tottenham against Liverpool, for example, I think would be absolutely fantastic matches. My second choice would be not by tactical or emotional reasons but by what I think would be fantastic extra motivation I would do Ajax versus Porto, as that would mean one of them reach the semi-finals."
