I chose Mkhitaryan out of respect for the Russian fans and journalists.The fact that this player speaks Russian. I appreciate and Mkhitaryan as a player, but don’t look for hints here”, — quotes Mourinho “Sport-Express”

Maybe from the outside, Jose is some kind of flattery, maybe he saw how we have won before in the Champions League. I don’t think tomorrow will be an easy match.
