Every club I coached played in a final – Mourinho brags after Roma beat Leicester. Jose Mourinho, the manager of Roma, has stated that he has led every club he has coached to a final.
Mourinho said this after Juventus overcame Leicester City 2-1 on aggregate to go to the Europa League final on Thursday.
It will be the Portuguese’s fifth participation in a European final, having won the previous four with Porto in the 2003 UEFA Cup and 2004 Champions League finals, Inter in the 2010 Champions League final, and Manchester United in the 2017 Europa League final.
“I’ve had the fortune to play in bigger and more prestigious finals than this one.
“Over the years I’ve become less egocentric and more like a father. Every club that I coached made a final. That’s good,” Mourinho said.
Every club I coached played in a final – Mourinho brags after Roma beat Leicester. If Roma defeat Feyenoord in the final, Mourinho would become only the third manager in history to win three different UEFA competitions after Giovanni Trapattoni and Udo Lattek.
Trapattoni and Lattek both won the European Cup, UEFA Cup and Cup Winners’ Cup.
