AS Roma football club manager, Jose Mourinho has named his favourite team to win the Europa League competition this season.
When he was asked which teams are the favourites to win the Europa League trophy after AS Roma’s 1-1 draw with Real Betis on Thursday, Mourinho told reporters that he sees “Betis as candidates, but the failed sharks of the Champions League will arrive, and they will come in hard.”
According to reports Mourinho is not happy with the rule that allows teams that finish third in the Champions’ League group stage to drop into the Europa League knockout stage.
“They shouldn’t come but it’s the reality. It’s going to be fun. The failures of the Champions League”, the Portuguese football manager told reporters.
