Mourinho In Tears As Roma Reach Europa Conference League Final
Jose Mourinho was left in tears, as he led Roma to the Europa Conference League final, with victory over Leicester City. He made history by becoming the first manager to reach the Champions League final, the Europa League final and Europa Conference League final.
The Conference League is new this season, and the third tier of UEFA’s competitions, and thanks to Tammy Abraham’s first half goal on Thursday, Mourinho could be the first winner.
For someone who has won so much, fans might have been forgiven for thinking the ‘Special One’ had no interest in the competition but at full time against Leicester he was visibly emotional and began crying.
The 59-year-old first won a European competition in 2003, when he led his Porto team to victory in the UEFA Cup, defeating Celtic in the final.
Tearing up as he walked towards the dugout and embracing his coaching staff with unabashed delight, it really was a moment that reminds the world just how much football means to Mourinho.
Roma will be playing Feyenoord at the finals on May 25.
