Europa League: Mourinho wants to win it as usual

Twenty years after lifting the European Cup for the first time with FC Porto, Jose Mourinho can win his sixth continental trophy with Roma in as many finals, tomorrow against Sevilla in the Europa League.

Since that first victory in 2003, already in C3, followed by his first Champions League the following year with the Portuguese “Dragons” against Monaco, “Special One” claims to have lost none of its thirst for trophies.

“My motivation keeps growing, it’s not a problem” He confirmed to the press last week, claiming he has become “a better coach and a better person” over the years and clubs (eight in twenty years).

“The player outperforms him with his body, but the coach always improves over time, with the accumulation of experience,” said “Mo”, who crossed the 60 mark at the beginning of the year. If Sevilla is the undisputed queen of C3, taking six titles in as many finals (2006, 2007, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2020), then Mourinho is also a European specialist with five out of five in the final: to the two. He won with Porto and added C1 won with Inter Milan in 2010, C3 with Manchester United in 2017 and won the new European League Conference (C4) at the end of his first Romanian season, a year ago.

Goal, UEFA Champions League

Tomorrow he could join stars like Alex Ferguson or Giovanni Trapattoni, who has also been crowned six times in European Cups, behind Carlo Ancelotti and his nine titles (including four Champions Leagues).

Having offered Roma the first title for 14 years, in a city that has enjoyed an aura of rock stars since its arrival in the summer of 2021, this new trophy will allow Louve – and Mourinho – to be able to make his big comeback. In the Champions League, a competition the ambitious Portuguese misses very much.

Mentioned in Paris Saint-Germain

After being named in December to take over the choice of Portugal or Brazil, his name is regularly cited in the press by Paris-SG, even if he recently confirmed not speaking to the French club.

Whether or not he finds a C1 spot with Roma could matter in his choices at the end of the season, but the Portuguese coach was careful not to say that ahead of the big meeting in Budapest tonight. “I only focus on the final. Everything is secondary when you play the final.confirmed.
