Bitter Jose Mourinho picks NO English teams to get into Champions League final including old club Man Utd

BITTER Jose Mourinho does not believe ANY of the remaining English sides in the Champions League have what it takes to make the final in Madrid.

The former Manchester United and Chelsea gaffer, 56, backs Barcelona and Juventus to battle it out for the “big ears” in June.

Half of the Champions League quarter-finalists are Premier League clubs following Liverpool, Manchester City, United and Tottenham’s heroics in the knock-out stages this season.

Spurs and the Citizens glided past Bundesliga sides Borussia Dortmund and Schalke respectively, with Pep Guardiola’s men drubbing their rivals 10-2 on aggregate.

Liverpool dumped out start-studded Bayern Munich, winning at Allianz Arena 3-1.

And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United spectacularly knocked out Paris Saint-Germain after overturning a two-goal deficit away from home as the first side in Champions League history to do so.

Meanwhile, Mourinho had led the Red Devils to a second-place finish in their group – resulting in the daunting round of 16 tie with the Ligue 1 champs – before being sacked by the Red Devils board in December.

But, still out of job, the Portuguese coach remains unfazed by the English teams’ results this season and says none of them are experienced enough to get to the final at Wanda Metropolitano.

He told Calciomercato: “Favourites? I would say Juve and Barcelona.

“Everyone talks about Ronaldo and Messi – but I prefer to talk about Juve and Barca.

“The English teams, as well as Ajax and Porto, are good sides too but they don’t have the same amount of experience.

“When you have Ronaldo or Messi, it certainly gives you a big plus.”

Champions League quarter-finals will take place between April 9 and 10, with reverse fixtures being played the following week.
