Former Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho, is not backing any of the four Premier League clubs who are in the UEFA Champions League quarter finals to go all the way.
Manchester United, Man City, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspurs have already confirmed their place in the last eight of the competition.
However, Mourinho is not backing any of them to reach the finals, naming Juventus and Barcelona as clear favorites to fight it out together in the finals.
The two teams have been drawn separately in the last eight of the competition, with Juventus scheduled to battle Ajax Amsterdam and Barcelona in line to battle the Red Devils.
Mourinho, who is yet to land a new job after his sacking at Old Trafford in December contends Juve and Barca have the perfect mixture of qualities required to win the Champions League.
"Juventus and Barcelona are the big candidates, but the English sides are there, as well as Ajax and Porto,’ Mourinho was quoted saying by AFP.
"Juve and Barca have experience, talent and each a special player. Normally, when you have a special player, your team is better," he added.
