Son of veteran actor Pete Edochie, Yul Edochie has said that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will lead the Red Devils to the semi-finals of the Europa League and ultimately win the title.Yul is a fan of Mourinho and the movie star wants to see the Portuguese manager lift the trophy at the Friends Arena, Sweden on May 24, 2017. In England, United are fifth in the English Premier League table with 60 points but Edochie has his preference on how Mourinho and his team should navigate their way to European football next season.
He said “I am a fan of Jose Mourinho and I want him to succeed wherever he coaches, he is Manchester United's coach and no longer at Chelsea so that says it all. Chelsea really disappointed me by sacking Mourinho. I was so happy when United won on Sunday, I must tell you. United have a game against Anderlecht and have to win to get to the semifinals. With United's form, I'm optimistic that they can go through. Do I prefer them to qualify for the Champions League through the Europa league or make the top four places? I will say I prefer the Europa because it is a very tight race for those Champions League spots. Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham seem not ready to drop points. Let's not forget Arsenal too despite some poor results”
