Mourinho wants Chelsea triumph

Jose Mourinho will be supporting Chelsea in the final of the Champions League, after Real Madrid were knocked out of the competition by Bayern Munich on penalties.

Real had triumphed 2-1 on the night at the Santiago Bernabeu but, with the scores 3-3 on aggregate, were forced into extra time, and then a penalty shootout, against the German giants.

Bayern, as Germans so often seem to do, kept their nerve in during the shootout, with Bastian Schweinsteiger scoring the decider to send the Bavarians into the final, where they will face Chelsea on home territory.

And Mourinho has given his backing to Chelsea's 'heroes', who defeated Barcelona over two legs in their semi-final, to emerge triumphant at the Allianz Arena on May 19.

"I obviously want Chelsea to win. They were heroes to beat Barcelona with 10 men," the former Blues manager told his post-match press conference.

"I'm proud of my players and we have to be strong but we were lacking freshness in an enormous game."

Mourinho won two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and three League Cups during his time at Stamford Bridge, before leaving west London in September 2007 under acrimonious circumstances.
