Jose Mourinho says a reporter who leaked his comments about Chelsea's strikers is "a disgrace" to his profession.Mourinho has consistently played down his side's chances of winning trophies this term but still believes his Chelsea side can go all the way to Lisbon. He said: "We are not favourites - that's obvious - but I think when a team reaches the quarter-final anything is possible, so I think this round is very important for every team. "The ones that reach the quarter-finals can start having a little feeling even if they're not a favourite: Chelsea won (in 2012) when not favourite, I won it twice when not a favourite, and I didn't win it when my team was one of the favourites to win it. "This competition, because of the knockout format, has a little space for a surprise but it's clear there are at least three, maybe four or five teams that are by quality, experience and status obviously favourites." Galatasaray may lack the Champions League pedigree of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, but they beat Mourinho's Madrid in the home leg of last season's quarter-finals. Roberto Mancini has since replaced Fatih Terim as boss, but the likes of Didier Drogba, Wesley Sneijder and Felipe Melo remain at the heart of the team. Mourinho said: "They were a good team then and they are a good team now. "If last season was very difficult for Real Madrid this season for Chelsea is not going to be different."
