Mourinho: “Only the big clubs are capable of reaching two European finals in a row”

Published

Jose Mourinho has paid tribute to Roma’s struggle against Sevilla in the Europa League final, arguing that only big European clubs are capable of winning European trophies two years in a row.

Roma were the first team to win the Europa Conference League, beating Feyenoord 1-0 in the final in Tirana in 2022, and a year later they are aiming to add another European trophy to their collection, the Europa League.

The opponent is the… worst you can face in an endgame. With six victories in finals in second-place European club competition, Sevilla are dreaming of the incredible 7v7, but the Romans now have the edge on their side with their own superweapon.

That is Jose Mourinho, who has won all five European finals he has attended in his coaching career. The Portuguese gives an interview to “Sky Sport Italia” two days before the big date in Budapest (31/ 05, 22:00, COSMOTE SPORT 1 HD, LIVE by Sportish) and to “raise” his team.

“We work hard every day to continue writing Roma history. Only big clubs with a great history are capable of reaching back-to-back European finals.” pointed out what was special and added meaningfully:

“I don’t think much about what I’ve gained in my career. The past is the past and history cannot be changed. I always look to the future, maybe that’s the secret of my philosophy.”

I’ve been in football for a long time, this final is a new final. At this point, I’m not thinking about what I could win, but about the joy I could bring to Roma fans.

It’s a city that thirsts for football. With Roma you have the feeling that you belong somewhere, that you are part of something.”

When asked how long he will be on the pitch considering he is in his seventh decade (he recently turned 60), Mourinho said:

“I’m not ready to close this chapter. I’ve been in football for years, people think I’m older than me.”

They might see my white hair and think I’m old, but I’m not old enough to think about leaving. You will see me in football for a few more years.”
