Mourinho: Barcelona are worse, so City have a chance

By on February 17, 2014

Jose Mourinho has suggested that Barcelona are worse than in recent years and that Manchester City have a chance in the Champions League round of 16 clash.

“I think this is the worst Barcelona of many many years, so City have a chance.’  Jose Mourinho told ITV. The Portuguese manager has appeared more mellow Blues last summer – self-proclaimed ‘Happy One’ but has been employing his standard mind games in recent weeks.

“Of course by history Barcelona is the favourite, but this Barcelona, this season, is showing that it is not the same in previous years,” Mourinho continued. “Of course they have (Lionel) Messi, he is special, and they have more than him.”
