Jose Mourinho pledges loyalty to Roma after Conference League win

Jose Mourinho Roma

Jose Mourinho looked to be at his happiest after Roma won the Conference League.

Another historic accolade has been earned by Jose Mourinho, as he became only the second manager to win five major European titles after Roma defeated Feyenoord in the Europa Conference League final.

It’s clear that the win gave Mourinho a boost and he explained why it was so special to him.

“The great thing about my career is that, aside from the Europa League with Manchester United, doing it with Porto, Inter and Roma is very, very, very special,” said Mourinho.

“It is one thing to win when everyone expects it, when you made the investments to win but it’s quite another to win when something feels immortal, that feels truly special.

“This remains in the history of Roma, but also mine. I was told only I, Sir Alex (Ferguson) and Giovanni Trapattoni won trophies in three different decades. It makes me feel a little old, but it’s nice for my career.”

Loyalty

The high was enough to convince Mourinho that he will not be tempted by offers from other clubs and that Roma is his priority.

“Now I am staying, there are no doubts,” Mourinho added. “Even if some rumours emerge, I only want to remain at Roma.”

Mourinho’s love of Roma was apparent but he admitted that it doesn’t take away from the love he’s had for some of his other clubs.

“We must understand what our owners, who are fantastic people, want to do next season because this is history, but we can build a really strong project with honest professionals.

“Of course I feel like a Romanista, but that might be my way of working.

“I am a Porto fan, an Inter fan, a Chelsea fan, I am crazy about Real Madrid, I am now a Roma fan, I belong to all those clubs because we had these moments together.”
