Jose Mourinho becomes only the second manager after Sir Alex Ferguson to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League for a record seventh time.

Jose Mourinho has equaled Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson's record of appearing in the semi-finals of the Champions League seven times as a manager.

The Portuguese achieved the feat on Tuesday when his Real Madrid side progressed to the last four with a 5-3 aggregate victory over Galatasaray.

This will be Mourinho's third successive appearance in the semi-finals of Europe's premier club competition with Madrid.

The 50-year-old reached the same stage with Porto in 2003-04, Chelsea in 2004-05 and 2006-07 and Inter Milan in 2009-10.

Mourinho won the competition with Porto in 2004 and Inter in 2010.
