Champions League: Mourinho names two clubs to play final.



Former Manchester United and Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, has backed  Barcelona to play Juventus in the Champions League final this season.

Juventus would face Ajax in the Champions League quarter-final next month after triumphing Atletico Madrid in the last 16 a few weeks ago, while Barcelona will face Manchester United after defeating Lyon in the last 16.

 Mourinho believes both Barcelona and Juventus are in pole positions to make the final.


“Juventus and Barcelona are the big candidates to play in the Champions League final, but the English sides are there, as well as Ajax and Porto,” Mourinho told AFP.

“Juve and Barca have experience, talent and each a special player. Normally, when you have a special player, your team is better.” He said.

Mourinho added: “Champions League quarter-final next month. We all talk about Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, but I prefer to talk about Juventus and Barcelona.

“I know everyone focuses on individuals, but I will always be a football coach and football will always be a team sport.
