Ferguson: Pressure is on Mourinho

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson says the pressure is on Real Madrid counterpart Jose Mourinho to win the Champions League.

The Spanish giants are 13 points behind Barcelona in the La Liga title race and the Real Madrid coach has already written off their chances of catching their rivals.

And, while United are still realistically challenging on three fronts this season, Ferguson expects the former Chelsea manager to focus his attention on Europe’s elite club competition.

Ahead of United’s Champions League last-16 first leg in Madrid on Wednesday, the Scot told reporters: “Their target is the European Cup this year.

“They got a bad start in the league and they’re chasing their tails because Barcelona’s form is incredible. So I think Jose has set his sights on the European Cup this year, there’s no doubt about that.

“He’d be the only person to win the European Cup with three different teams, so it’s a fantastic challenge for him.

“I think the European Cup has always been important to him. He’s done a great job there. He’s got a terrific squad of players, but there’s no secret to his desire to win the European Cup.”
