âI don't think Serie A and the Premier League can be compared - they are two different competitions,â Mourinho said.
âI keep saying that the game in England is more emotional, beautiful and open with an incredible atmosphere, but teams are stronger from a tactical viewpoint in Italy.
âEvery team is organised in Serie A and they know what to do on the pitch. There are also a lot of goals and a lot of ambitious teams - look at Udinese, Fiorentina and Genoa playing high-level football.â
âSir Alex has more experience than me and Manchester United are in a great position, seven points clear in the League,â Jose stated.
âThis tie doesn't mean anything special. The objective is just to get through. I have no extra desire to beat anyone in particular.
âWe were happy with the draw because it's very easy for me to prepare the players psychologically. The adrenaline is already in the air.
âUnited are a great attacking team, but I watched every game they played in the Champions League last year in detail.
âThey will not come here with an attacking approach. We will play the same way we do in Serie A.
âAdriano, Ibrahimovic, Javier Zanetti, Esteban Cambiasso, Dejan Stankovic, Sulley Muntari and four at the back - that's my team.â
