Mourinho delighted that the showpiece will be coming to London.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has hailed today’s announcement that the semi-finals and final of the continent-wide Euro 2020 competition will be held in London, at Wembley, as “fantastic news” according to the Mail.
Joining a number of high-profile footballing luminaries from the Premier League, Mourinho welcomed the news that the national stadium would be hosting matches at a major international tournament for the first time since its rebuild:
“Great. I think it has to be a special Euro because it is playing in so many countries, but ending in London and Wembley, I think is fantastic news.”
However, despite consistent rumours suggesting that Mourinho would one-day be interested in managing his native Portugal, he has insisted that he will be watching on as a fan in six years’ time:
“I’d like to be there as a fan, not as a manager.”
