Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has hailed Manchester United as favourites to win the Europa League following our Champions League exit.

When asked about his thoughts on Man United dropping down to the UEFA Europa League, Jose Mourinho said (as quoted by Metro): “Of course Manchester United become one of the top favourites to win the Europa League.

“The teams that drop from the Champions League are always strong teams. They are teams that normally don’t belong to that level of the Europa League competition.

“And of course Manchester United is one of the top teams. The group was very hard, PSG, Manchester, Leipzig, the group was of course very hard.

“We all knew it was not going to be easy for any one of them, we knew from that group a top team would drop to the Europa League.”
