Every Club I’ve Managed Played In Final – Mourinho

Roma manager, Jose Mourinho, has said that every club he managed played in the final of Europe elite tournaments.

Mourinho said this after his side qualified for the Europa Conference League final after beating Leicester City 2-1 on aggregate on Thursday.

This makes sit the fifth final Mourinho will be playing in having won the previous four: the 2003 UEFA Cup and 2004 Champions League finals with Porto, the 2010 Champions League final with Inter, and the 2017 Europa League final with Manchester United.

“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.

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.
