3:42 pm on 18 September 2012

The Real Madrid football manager Jose Mourinho believes Manchester City will win the European Champions League some time in the near future.

The two sides meet at the Bernabeu tomorrow morning in the opening group matches of the new competition.

Mourinho, the former Chelsea manager has compared the investment made at City to that at Stamford Bridge under Roman Abramovich.

Mourinho says with the direction City is going, sooner or later they will win the big cup.

Mourinho delivered two Premier League titles at Chelsea but was unable to add the Champions League - which he has won with Porto and Inter Milan - to the club's trophy cabinet.

Chelsea eventually won the trophy last season under Roberto Di Matteo.

Among the other matches tomorrow AC Milan play Anderlecht and Montpellier play Arsenal.
