Mourinho certain of third UCL title

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is certain it is only a matter of time before he lifts his third Champions League title.

• La Liga: Sunday review

Mourinho first won Europe's most coveted prize in 2004 with Porto before again claiming glory with Inter Milan in 2010.

Real, despite their disappointing showing in La Liga this season, are considered strong favourites to secure the Champions League trophy during the current campaign.

And Mourinho, whose side meet Manchester United in the last 16, is confident he is destined to make it three European Cup successes in his career.

"I shall win the cup again, I don't know whether with Real Madrid this year, as everything is very even, but my third Champions League will come," he told Italian television station Rai.

"What I can't say is that I shall get it this season, but in the 15 or 20 years I have remaining as a manager, I shall get it."

Mourinho was also asked about his former managerial rival Pep Guardiola, who is to take over at Bayern Munich in the summer following a year-long sabbatical after leaving Barcelona at the end of last season.

The Portuguese was reluctant, though, to enter into another psychological battle with the Spaniard, instead reiterating they will unlikely lock horns domestically as he has no plans to manage in Germany.

"Has he deliberately chosen a league I am not involved in? I don't know," Mourinho said. "It is his choice. What is certain is that I will not manage in Germany. I make no comments, it is all the same to me."
