Jose Mourinho names his picks to win the Premier League and Champions League

Jose Mourinho names his picks to win the Premier League and Champions League

Jose Mourinho has had his say on who will win the Premier League and Champions League this season.

Jose Mourinho has named his picks to win the Champions League and Premier League this season.

The 61-year-old has just been sacked by Roma following a two-and-a-half year spell in charge.

And he revealed all about his exit in an interview with Rio Ferdinand's FIVE YouTube channel, also discussing his storied career and an offer to manage the England national team.

But Mourinho was also asked to do some predictions for the current campaign and unsurprisingly treble winners Manchester City came up in both departments.

The ex Chelsea and Manchester United manager thinks City will pip Liverpool to an unprecedented fourth title in a row.

And he also believes it's between them and former club Real for the Champions League - though he wants the latter to do it again for a 15th time.

"Premier League, City/Liverpool but I think City," he told FIVE.

"Champions League, I would say City or Real Madrid.

"If somebody outside [those two] wins it, for me, it would be a great surprise.

"I would love Real Madrid to win it again for the club and for Carlo [Ancelotti]. I don't know, Bayern Munich can do it, Paris Saint-Germain.

"Looking at potential, I think City/Liverpool for the Premier [League], City/Real for the Champions [League]."

In the wide-ranging interview, Mourinho also discussed the best tactical achievement of his career and how he believes it has been forgotten.

He was referring to his two-legged victory over Pep Guardiola's Barcelona when at Inter Milan in 2010.

Inter won the first leg 3-1 and kept the score at 1-0 at the Nou Camp despite playing with 10 men following Thiago Motta's controversial red card.

"No, because the first one when we beat Barcelona 3-1 was better. And people forget it.

"It was 3-1, and it could have been four or five. That was the match that took us to the final. And the second leg was a consequence of the first."
