Owen Hargreaves has told BT Sport’s coverage of this week‘s Champions League highlights that he believes Tottenham can win the Champions League under Jose Mourinho, claiming Mourinho has won the competition with worse sides.
Spurs qualified for the last 16 of the competition before this week’s 3-1 defeat to Bayern Munich, and had to accept that they were going to finish second. It saw Mourinho rest some key players, including Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
Goals from Kingsley Coman, Thomas Muller and Philippe Coutinho saw Bayern cancel out Ryan Sessegnon’s equaliser. It was a poor performance from Spurs, but Mourinho has claimed he has learnt a lot from his players.
Former England and Bayern midfielder Hargreaves has claimed that Mourinho – who has won the Champions League twice with Porto and Inter Milan – has won the competition with lesser sides than Tottenham’s team, and says they can win it.
