Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has said “anything is possible” if they can overcome Sevilla on Tuesday night and qualify for the Champions League quarter-finals.
CLubs like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and United’s local rivals and runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City, are favourites to win the competition.
But Mourinho, who has won the competition twice before with Porto and Inter Milan, said United will start “smelling” the semi-finals if they manage to get past Sevilla.
“I think we’re not one of the best teams in the competition.
“But when a team arrives in the last eight, anything can happen.
“When you’re in the last sixteen it looks really far, but in the last eight you start smelling the semi-finals.
“When a team gets into the last eight, the feeling is you are among the best, but anything can happen.
”If we go through to the quarter-finals, it doesn’t matter the opponent, it will always be one of the big names in European football, but we’ll try,” Mourinho said.
