Leonardo Bonucci and his Juventus team would rather not face Jose Mourinho and Tottenham Hotspur in the next round of the UEFA Champions League.

It appears that the mighty Juventus fear the prospect of facing another Jose Mourinho side in the Champions League.

It was Mourinho’s Manchester United side, that inflicted a highly unlikely defeat on the Bianconeri in Turin last season.

This fact is still fresh in the mind of Leonardo Bonucci.

It is not so much Spurs that Bonucci fears, but more Mourinho.

He believes the Portuguese has the ability to give his sides that something extra that opponents struggle to cope with.

In an interview reported by Goal, Bonucci admits his fears.

He said:

“I would like to avoid Tottenham.”

“With the arrival of Mourinho, in some games, he can give them something extra.”

“In knockout games, without wanting to take anything away from [Mauricio] Pochettino, Mourinho knows how to drag something more out of his players.”

Reports like this will leave Mourinho smelling blood and rubbing his hands in anticipation of another big scalp.
