In the trailer for the fifth episode of 'On the Touchline with Jose Mourinho', the Portuguese coach reviews the UEFA Champions League semi-final first legs between Barcelona vs Liverpool and Tottenham vs Ajax. The full show will air on RT later on Thursday.
In the teaser, Mourinho discusses the brilliance of Barcelona captain Lionel Messi after the Argentine scored a brace, including his 600th goal for the club, as the Spanish giants beat Liverpool 3-0 at the Camp Nou.
The Portuguese manager also says that Ajax “didn’t have the pressure on them until now”, as the Dutch side secured a 1-0 away victory against Tottenham.
Mourinho, the self-titled ‘Special One’, has returned to RT for special coverage of the 2019 UEFA Champions League.
He won FIFA World Coach of the Year in 2010, and has managed some of the world biggest football clubs such as Manchester United, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Internazionale Milan. He was also named Portuguese Coach of the Century by the Portuguese Football Federation and one of the greatest ten coaches since 1954 by UEFA.
Last summer Mourinho provided commentary and predictions on the World Cup 2018 matches as part of RT's specially-launched project.
