Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho has reckoned that Liverpool can reach the Champions League final again next season.
Liverpool won the Champions League for a sixth time in their history, with a 2-0 victory over Premier League rivals Tottenham at the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday night.
It was Mohamed Salah’s spot kick and Divock Origi’s last minute strike that gave the Reds their victory.
After watching Real Madrid hand over their crown after three successive titles, Mourinho predicted a third final in a row for Liverpool.
The former Chelsea boss who won the competition with Porto and Inter Milan, said on beIN Sports, “With Real Madrid it’s three in a row. Why can’t Liverpool do three finals in a row?
“Why Liverpool, with this good team, with this good spirit, with this good empathy. The club, the manager, the players, the fans. Why not a third?”
Mourinho also named seven other clubs that are capable of claiming the title.
“I was writing here the teams that want to win the Champions League. Juventus, Bayern, PSG, Manchester United, City, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid,” Mourinho added.
“You have seven or eight teams.
“Lots of teams want to do it, but only one can do it.”
However, Mourinho thinks Chelsea’s transfer ban will harm their chances of doing well in the Champions League.
“It is difficult for Chelsea because they don’t have the possibility to be in the transfer market,” Mourinho said of the Europa League champions.
