Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says teams will not be “jumping with happiness” if they are drawn to face his team in the Champions League knockout stage after his side beat CSKA Moscow to win their group according to report from BBC Sport.
United had to come from behind to secure their place in the last 16 of the competition – the first time they have progressed that far since David Moyes was in charge in 2014.
Victory at Old Trafford ensured Mourinho’s team finished above second-placed Basel in Group A with 15 points from their six games.
“I think it does not matter which team we get in the draw,” the Portuguese manager was quoted by BBC Sport.
“I am not the luckiest guy with draws so it is better I shut up and forget it because we only play in February. Until then I have to concentrate on the English competitions.
“I think that teams will not be jumping with happiness to play against us. I don’t think so.
“I am really happy because we don’t want to qualify with a defeat and we don’t want to qualify with a bad performance so the objective was to qualify playing well.”
