Former Man Utd boss Mourinho fires dig at ‘lucky’ Man Metropolis

Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho thinks Manchester City have a lot of luck when it comes to Champions League draws.

The Citizens beat Schalke 3-2 in Germany in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie to put them in a good position to move into the quarter-finals.

Pep Guardiola’s men overcame Shakhtar Donetsk, Lyon and Hoffenheim to top their group with only one loss and Mourinho has claimed that City have benefited from “lucky” draws.

When asked if City would beat Schalke to progress in the Champions League, Mourinho said: “Yeah, easy, Man City are having a very good season.

“But honestly, they are so lucky in the draws.

“You look at the Champions League… their group phase [was easy].

“And now the tie against Schalke, I would say they beat Schalke and will get Porto or Ajax in the quarter-final.”
