Real Madrid manager José Mourinho has said that his priority next season will be to guide the club to Champions League success. Real Madrid are the most successful team in the European competition after having lifted the famous trophy nine times in their history. AC Milan are the second team, but they have only seven trophies to their credit. However, it has been quite awhile since Real Madrid lifted the famous trophy – more than a decade to be precise. Real Madrid last tasted Champions League success under current Spanish manager Vicente del Bosque back in 2001.
They are looking to extend their record by winning the 10th Champions League title, but it has eluded them for the best part of a decade. Real Madrid recently appointed manager José Mourinho not only to wrestle the la Liga title back from Barcelona, but also to achieve this elusive dream. The Portuguese manager has won the famous competition twice with two different clubs, although he failed to achieve the dream with English club Chelsea. He is looking to become the first manager to win the title with three different clubs. As a result, he will be focusing on the prospect of winning the title next season according to the Portuguese.
“I want to win the Champions League with three distinct teams. Now Real Madrid has won the league, the objective for next season is to win the Champions League. I don’t believe I could manage a national team that only plays a game every two months and an official tournament every two years. I need the pressure of facing two or three games every week,” said José Mourinho regarding the priorities for next season. Real Madrid are not expected to change the squad dramatically after failing in the semi-final stage of the competition in succession.
