UEFA Conference League – Mourinho did it again: he took Roma to the final of the tournament. And he became the first coach to do it with four different teams. The Italians beat Leicester and will define the title against Feyenoord.
By Facundo Di Bona (@facudibona).
After 31 years, Roma will play again in a European Cup final. The Italians beat Leicester 1-0 to book their ticket to the first Conference League final.
Roma beat Leicester in the second leg thanks to Tammy Abraham’s solitary goal. They will now face Feyenoord of the Netherlands, who eliminated Olympique Marseille in the Semifinals.

Total excitement for Mourinho, for his players and for the 66,000 fans who packed the Olimpico. But especially for 166 very special fans.
Minutes after the victory, Roma announced a prize for the fans in anticipation of the final on May 25 against Feyenoord, which will be played at the Arena Kombëtare stadium in Tirana, Albania.
Remember when Roma lost 6-1 to Bodo/Glimt; and pencil pushers pretending to be journalists, came out in flocks to claim Jose was going through another dressing room meltdown?
Well, he’s just got Roma to their first final since 2010. Maybe it’s time you stopped listening to them.

What is the prize about? Roma announced that it will give free tickets to the 166 fans who had accompanied the team to Norway. On that October 21, 2021, the day they suffered the painful 1-6 loss to Bodo in the first round of this competition.
“The club has decided to reward the 166 season ticket holders present at the match on 21/10/2021 in the away section of the Aspmyra Stadion. For these fans, the club will guarantee a ticket. The list of the beneficiaries was drawn up on the basis of sales reports provided by FK Bodo/Glimt. Therefore, the unique code will be sent by May 7 to the email address used to purchase the ticket on the Bodo ticketing portal.”

Mourinho moved to tears
After Roma’s victory, Jose Mourinho was emotional on the bench after making history. He wept with emotion. And it is that he achieved a record that seems unmatched.
Mourinho became the first coach to reach three European finals in different tournaments: Champions League, Europa League, and – now – UEFA Conference League.
• He's won 25 major trophies
• He's won league titles in FOUR different countries
• He's won the Champions League twice
• He's won the Europa League and the UEFA Cup

Mourinho reached his eighth European final. He also became the first coach to reach the final of a European competition with four different teams.
Mourinho’s first final was with Porto in the Champions League. Then he was champion of the same tournament with Inter Milan in 2010. And in 2017 he lifted the Europa League with Manchester United. In addition, he lost three finals in European Super Cups.

During the celebrations, Mourinho did not hold back and burst into tears. After being heavily criticized in his season in Italy, he said:
“I am very emotional. Of course I have had other great moments. But I feel very sorry for the people and my players. This for us is our Champions League. When you work in Rome, live in Rome and breathe Rome, you breathe this club. Because it is the real club of the city. I felt from the first day that it is huge. But without victories and without many finals. The history is not related to the social dimension of the club.”
