Karanka feels sad for Mourinho but pleased for Real

Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka says he feels sad for Jose Mourinho that Chelsea didn't qualify for the UEFA Champions League final, but he is pleased that Real Madrid did.

The 40-year-old worked as Mourinho's assistant manager at Real Madrid between 2010 to 2013. Karanka also spent five years as a player with the Spanish giants between 1997 and 2002.

Chelsea were knocked out at the semi-final stage after losing 3-1 to Atletico Madrid last night. While Real Madrid had already guaranteed their place in the final with a 5-0 aggregate victory over Bayern Munich. Karanka says he believes his former club will go on to be crowned champions of Europe.
