After his little joke, a journalist asked Mourinho if he thought the end of the season in Serie A would therefore be easier. Because the other club from Roma was eliminated from the Europa League conference. And the 60-year-old technician, who won the same trophy with La Louve last year, taunted his rival:

“For sure, this is better for Lazio. UEFA will have to spend the money to move the trophy. He could have stayed in Rome.”

And as a reminder, three clubs across the Alps will see the quarter-finals of the Champions League. Roma, Juventus and Fiorentina are still in the race for the Europa League and the Europa League Conference. But according to Mourinho, the Old Lady should not be on the list. Thus, the Portuguese dealt with the Piedmont club, which returned to the European League after being eliminated in the group stage of the Champions League: “In my opinion, Juventus should not be able to play in the Europa League. I could be wrong, but I believe that when you are eliminated from the competition, you are eliminated.”
