“Of course, Spurs is not winning titles and to win the first one, the biggest one of all, would be, of course, fantastic,” he told Sky Sports.

“That would mean to win other domestic trophies [is easier] because the Champions League is the biggest one of all.

“I think, big match, of course, with huge levels of pressure. We used to say finals are not to play, finals are to win.”

Meanwhile, the Portuguese, who had two spells as Chelsea manager, also reflected on the Blues’ Europa League final against Arsenal and the future of Eden Hazard.

“It looks like it is the last match in blue for Eden Hazard, a player that was crucial for Chelsea success in this last generation,” the 56-year-old said.

“I think Eden will try to be what he is the majority of the time, a fantastic player on the pitch and to win and go, possibly, I don’t want to say more than possibly, to Real Madrid with a last trophy for Chelsea.”

Both sets of supporters have faced difficulties, and have been unable to sell out their ticket allocation.

“I feel sorry for some Chelsea and Arsenal fans that they could not find a way to be in Baku supporting their teams,” Mourinho added.
