Revenge On José Followed By Revenge On His Team

Revenge On José Followed By Revenge On His Team

We all remember our first meeting with Jose Mourinho, don't we? His sprint down the touchline at Old Trafford in 2004 seriously wounded our pride and it took a long time to exact proper retribution for it.

The first step was reclaiming the league crown from Mourinho's Chelsea: check. Next step was knocking out Mourinho's current team, Inter, at the same stage his Porto team had defeated us at: check.

Now we're at the final step of this mission: teach Porto a lesson. They are much weaker than five years ago when they went on to win the competition while we are much stronger. We're clear favourites to reach the semi-final of the Champions League for the third successive season.

After the disastrous 2005/06 campaign, we paid back our debts to Benfica and Lille the next year, knocking out both. It's time to banish the ghost of 2004 as well, for ever.
