PARIS (AFP) – Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho said he will be cheering on French league leaders Paris Saint-Germain in their Champions League quarter-final, second leg, against Barcelona today, Wednesday.
PSG face a tough task at the Camp Nou as they look to qualify for the semi-finals having drawn 2-2 at home in the first leg.
But they have some star-studded support in the form of Barca’s public enemy number one.
“I have friends in Paris, I don’t have any friends in Barcelona,” Mourinho told BeInSport in French when asked who he’d like to see progressing.
Mourinho’s Real side had just secured their place in the last four despite a 3-2 defeat at Galatasaray, progressing thanks to their 3-0 success at the Santiago Bernabeu a week ago.
