Jose Mourinho once again confirmed what kind of coach he is. The Portuguese managed to secure the Europa League final with AS Roma and will have the opportunity to win the European trophy for the second year in a row. Last year he did it in the Conference League, and now he has a chance in the second-strongest competition.
After going to the final, Mourinho praised his players, and he put a special accent on the tactically perfectly executed game by the players. The players did everything that Mourinho asked for and were rewarded in the end. “This is the way my team is, a matter of small details,” -Mourinho said, as quoted by romapress.net “If Smalling isn’t on the bench maybe we don’t win tonight.
Losing Celik was tough. Same with Spinazzola,” he added. “This result is possible thanks to our ability to stick to tactics, direct the game in our favour and cover our weaknesses”.
Jose Mourinho and final
The Portuguese believes that the players deserve a great welcome.
Their discipline and desire throughout the season led to this success. Of course, none of this would have been possible without Jose Mourinho, who believed in the players, in the team, and ultimately in himself. In the final, Sevilla will be waiting for them, which has a huge experience in European finals, considering that they have won 4 Europa Leagues in the last 10 years or so.
“I don’t know if I can ask anything more from the fans, but these boys deserve something special on Monday when we will depart Trigoria. My concern is not to become part of Roma’s history, but to help the boys grow as players and help the Romanisti who have helped me from day one.
I want to give joy to these people like the joy of going to a European final”.
AS Roma will have to prepare well for the biggest challenge that awaits them.
