José Mourinho hero of Rome: the joy, the tears and the new record

The technician of the Rome José Mourinho spoke to the press microphones immediately after the final whistle of the return semi-final of Conference League against the Leicester game ended 1-0 for the Giallorossi thanks to the goal at the start of Tammy Abraham.

The Special One in addition to having reached yet another great record of his career as a coach, exalts the group, the Giallorossi environment and all the players who have reached this great milestone.

Roma-Leicester, Mourinho: “This is a family victory”

There Rome reached the final of a European competition for the first time since 1990/91 UEFA Cup when in the semifinal he eliminated the Brondby whose doorman was Peter Schmeichel father of the current goalkeeper of the Leicester . In the double final, then, the team coached by Ottavio Bianchi was defeated by Inter .

José Mourinho visibly tested after a very intense race, celebrates the success of the team and the group all to the microphones of Sky Sport:

“This is a family victory, both on the pitch and in the stands. I believe that this union and sense of family has given us a hand to play a beautiful game. There will be someone who will say more, but if your goalkeeper makes two saves in 180 minutes in a Cup semi-final against a Premier League team then it means we have done something great. The players deserve it, but there are still three Serie A games to play. We have lost points in the championship, but now we are going to the final and we want to win it ”.

Mourinho also dedicates space to a purely tactical consideration:

“We are a team that risks pressing, but we can’t do it in the 90 minutes. We lowered the block, we changed with 3-5-1-1, without Mkhitaryan it was difficult to have the ball, but Zaniolo And Abraham they did a great job ”.

Rome-Leicester, Mourinho on Abraham: “I refuse to talk about him, he can do more”

Tammy Abraham scored nine goals in UEFA Conference League . The only English players to score more in a season in major European competition (excluding qualifiers) were Alan Shearer (11 in 2004/05 UEFA Cup ) And Stan Bowles (11 in 1976/77 UEFA Cup ).

Despite the goal and the great performance, it is Special One does not lower the tension with his player, saying jokingly (but who knows how much) that he does not want to talk too much about it because he knows he could do better:

“Abraham knows, I don’t want to speak highly of him as he is able to do more, he has the ability to do better. Availability must always have it, I want more from someone like him, he must not do it in this way only against Lazio or in major competitions. And also my good friend Carletto Ancelotti gave me a super gift with Real, let’s go to the final to win ”.

Conference League, yet another record in the Special One’s career

José Mourinho has not only achieved a great milestone for the Rome , but adds a hefty record to his already glorious coaching career. The Special One in fact he is now officially the only coach in the history of football to reach a European final with four different teams.

Mourinho in fact it reached the final of UEFA Cup with the Port (then won in the final 3-2 with Celtic ) and that of Champions League (also won here with Monk ), again that of Champions with l ‘Inter in the 2010 year of the historian Triplets .

After that, it Special One also wins the Europa League with the Manchester United from Zlatan Ibrahimovic (2-0 against Ajax in 2017).

Four out of four, therefore, and then the Roma fans can cross their fingers, also thinking that the Inter Triplete began to take shape exactly 12 years ago: on May 5, 2010, Inter won the Italian Cup. Where and against whom? At the Olimpico, against Roma …
