Mourinho leaves his future up in the air: ‘I’ll be in Rome until Monday’

Portuguese Roma coach Jose Mourinho once again left his future in the air in the Italian capital this Wednesday, where he assured to stay until Monday, without clarifying whether he will continue next season.

“I’m looking forward to going home on Monday and playing on Sunday as unfortunately I can’t sit on the bench. I need a vacation, I’m very tired. I will stay in Rome until Monday,” he said at the end of the game, just after losing the Europa League final on penalties against Sevilla.

The Setubalense was very critical of the referees: “The influence of the referees in our matches is something we are used to, but in a European final I did not expect that.”

“Just look at Ibáñez’s mouth and you will understand everything, just look at Lamela who took a penalty and should have been sent off; it is enough to see that the team that played better in the first half is the one that ended up with three yellow cards. Pellegrini falls and it’s yellow, Ocampos simulates and there’s no yellow,” he stressed.

The defeat deeply moved the ‘giallorosso’ team, who arrived in Budapest hoping to lift their second consecutive European trophy.

“I told the players at the end of the game, I always speak to them honestly. I’ve won five finals before this and I’m going home no less proud this time than the other five I’ve won. Very proud of the boys,” he mused.

‘I’ve told you before. Either we leave here with the cup, or we leave dead. And we came out dead. The players are dead tired, so am I, physically and psychologically. It was a very tough final, I think we played almost 150 minutes because the discounts were unbelievable,” he said.
