Mourinho was in humble mood again during an interview about Manchester United’s quality compared José to Real Madrid.
He stated that the Europa League is very difficult to win but “top quality” lies in the Champions League.
Mourinho had, in a previous interview, mentioned many of their players who are superior to his and admitted Real Madrid and FC Barcelona are a class above.
Mourinho has never won the Super Cup and would surely love to do so against the club he left in unhappy circumstances four years ago.
He clashed with several Real Madrid players but brushed off the notion he holds a grudge. “My problems in football never go beyond the world of football,” he said.
“I have absolutely no problem with anyone because I no longer work for them. I have a relationship and friendship with some of them that has continued through the years, not just Real Madrid,”he added.
His and Manchester United’s emotion will rocket if they can beat Real Madrid and claim the trophy for a second time.
It will be tough but this is exactly the level of examination Mourinho and his team require.
