Jose Mourinho backs Real Madrid to win the UEFA Champions League

Former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has backed Los Blancos to win the UEFA Champions League this season. Ahead of the quarter-final draw, the Portuguese manager said (via talkSPORT):

“There is a club that is close to my heart and there is a manager who is my friend. Real Madrid are great and Carlo Ancelotti is great! Hopefully, they will go on in this way to win the final.”

Chelsea and Real Madrid will face off in the UCL for the third time in a row. The Blues won the semi-finals of the 2020-21 season and went on to lift the trophy. Los Blancos then beat Chelsea in the quarter-finals last season and eventually lifted the trophy for a record-extending 14th time.
