Jose Mourinho was in the stands for United’s 2-0 victory over Everton today ahead of our Round of 16 clash next week against Real Madrid.
“I feel privileged about that because he is such an important person in the world of football and, more importantly, he is good person,” he said. “I have always had a fantastic relationship with him and I am proud of it. We have had so many matches between us which started with Porto. We had some with Chelsea, Inter and now Real. Some I had won, some I have lost, others I have drawn. Of course, I want to win and he wants to win, but I believe the loser will have a little bit of space to feel a little bit happy because of the friendship. But make no mistake, I want to win.”
Mourinho has reflected on the games ahead, claiming that the world is waiting for this game.
“It is the match the world is waiting for,” he added. “People think we are under pressure because a big team will be out. But it is the kind of match we want and the people are not waiting for any other game. I hope we give them what they want.”
