Jose Mourinho says Manchester United’s dramatic win at Paris Saint-Germain was “phenomenal,” on his TV show with RT.
‘On the Touchline with Jose Mourinho’ is to be aired in full later on Thursday, but the Portuguese coach hailed his former team’s 3-1 win in Paris as they booked their place in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Mourinho can say anything about United and it will grab headlines, but this time he’s not looking to take a shot at his former club. He was also impressed with Ajax’s final result against Real Madrid, winning the second leg 4-1 at the Bernabeu.
“[Ajax] were not afraid to play at the Bernabeu, the young guys, they showed great attitude, they put the needle in the wound,” Mourinho told RT.
“Ajax and Manchester United results are phenomenal results.”
Mourinho was also asked about returning to management, with a view to do so this summer.
He was sacked by United in December and replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
There’s a good chance he will return to Real Madrid as manager, but with the club in crisis mode he will have a huge challenge on his hands.
Los Blancos are as good as finished for the season now – out of the Champions League and La Liga title race.
