Mourinho Would ‘Enjoy’ Facing Real

Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, has said that he would ‘enjoy’ facing his former club, Real Madrid, in the Champions League semi-final.

The Blues had progressed on Tuesday on away goals against Paris Saint-Germain following a strong comeback in the second leg.

Mourinho confirmed that it doesn’t really matter which of the 'very strong' opponents his side will get in the draw on Friday and wouldn’t be concerned about facing Real.

“If we play Madrid we’ll enjoy it,” he said as reported by AS.

“I fancy whoever the draw gives us.

“There were eight very strong teams in the quarter-finals and it almost didn’t matter who you played.

“All four teams in the semi-final will be very strong. That’s what I expect, a strong rival.

“The important thing is that (Chelsea) are among the strongest.”

Mourinho has never been eliminated in the Champions League quarter-finals and became the first manager in Champions League history to reach his eighth semi-final of the competition.

He had shared the record of making seven final-four appearances with Sir Alex Ferguson, who took twice as long to reach this landmark.

The Blues manager has already won as many Champions League trophies as the former Manchester United boss (two), and took another step towards a third victory this week.
