“I think it’s a dangerous week for us, because we come from a very good result”

Jose Mourinho

“I think it’s a dangerous week for us, because we come from a very good result,” Mourinho told MUTV. “And also I think a few consecutive victories in the Premier League, so our moment is good, playing against a team that is still fighting, and they will fight until mathematically it’s not possible. “I think it’s a dangerous match, but probably what happened this week in the football world maybe opened the eyes for everyone that, in football, anything is possible.”Following United’s comeback at City, Roma matched it in the Champions League against Barcelona, while Juventus almost pulled off a miracle away to Real Madrid.

And on the crazy week of football, Mourinho added: “In every competition, [it] was in the Champions League, it was in the Europa League. In Austria, three goals in six minutes, what happened with Roma, what happened with Real Madrid-Juventus. “So many results that give me reason, when I always tell my players that, in football, anything in possible – both ways. “You can be winning 3-0 and the result is not safe, you can be losing two or three-nil and the match is not lost. Big teams, small teams – what is that in football? Football is an incredible sport.”
