Jose Mourinho breaks Sir Alex Ferguson's Champions League record

Sir Alex Ferguson

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho broke a record belonging to the Manchester United manager last night.

Jose Mourinho's run down the touchline against PSG evoked memories of his sprint at Old Trafford when celebrating knocking out Manchester United.

That night in 2004 will bring back haunting memories for Sir Alex Ferguson, and a decade on he has surpassed the United legend in one area.

He has already equalled Fergie's total of two Champions League wins, achieved with Porto and Inter Milan, and took another step towards a third last night with Chelsea.

The win over PSG took Chelsea into the semi-finals, and gave Jose Mourinho a unique place in Champions League history.

The upcoming fixtures will be his eighth Champions League semi-finals as a coach, a record bettered by none.

Previously it was a record he shared with Sir Alex Ferguson on seven, who took twice as long as Jose Mourinho to reach the figure.

Manchester United themselves will be bidding to reach the semi-finals against Bayern Munich themselves on Wednesday night, and David Moyes attempting to qualify for his first.

Sadly for fans of the Red Devils, that shows the difference in calibre between Moyes and the manager they reportedly decided against bringing in last summer.
