Tottenham coach Jose Mourinho thinks that the “Red Devils” have a great opportunity to win the second biggest competition in the world, the Europa League, after they were eliminated from the Champions League last night.

Jose Mourinho believes that Manchester United are “top favorites” to win the Europa League.

United were beaten 3-2 last night by RB Leipzig, which means they will not play in the knockout stage of the Champions League.

Spurs coach Morinho made these comments today at the press conference while saying that United are the main favorites for the Europa League trophy.

“Manchester United are the top favorites to win this race.” said the Portuguese.

“The teams that fall from the Champions League are stronger and normally do not belong to the level of the Europa League.

“United are a top team. The group they were in was very strong, especially Paris Saint-Germain and Leipzig. We know it will not be easy for them.”

Mourinho won the Europa League with the Red Devils three years ago, and has managed to qualify Tottenham among the 32 best teams.

The Spurs could win Group J if they beat Antwerp on Thursday, but Serge Aurier will not be in the squad after suffering a minor injury in the North London derby where the Spurs beat Arsenal.

However, Mourinho has confirmed that Tanguy Ndombele will return to this match when asked if he has any new news about new injuries.
