Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho admits he is hoping the Blues can conquer Bayern Munich and win the Champions League.
Roberto Di Matteo’s men are 7/4 with bookmaker to win the final, which will be against the German giants following their dramatic penalty shoot-out victory over Mourinho’s Real Madrid.
The Portuguese had been aiming to lift the famous trophy with a third different club but is now backing his former side to triumph on Munich’s home soil.
“People who criticise them (Chelsea) know nothing about character, effort and how a team with 10 men can resist physically, mentally and tactically. It reminded me of my own Inter Milan team two years ago,” he said.
“The Chelsea fans are fantastic, as are the German fans so I hope they enjoy it and it is a great final, but I hope Chelsea win.”
