Mourinho: "We are dead tired, but proud"
Sevilla won the Europa League title after defeating AS Roma.
Sevilla were able to become a seven-time champion of the Europa League after defeatingAS Roma
. The match ended in a 1-1 draw in regular time, but Sevilla were able to win 4-1 in penalty shootouts.
Mourinho said to Sky Sport Italia after the game:
"What I said is we either leave here with the Cup or we leave dead. Well, we’re dead. We’re dead tired physically, dead tired mentally, dead because we think it is an unjust defeat with lots of incidents that are debatable,"
"We are dead tired, but proud. I always say you can lose a football match, but never your dignity or professionalism. I won five European finals, I lost this one, but I return home prouder than ever this time. The lads gave absolutely everything this season."
This was Mourinho's first defeat in a European final. He had reached the final of European competition five times before with Porto, Inter Milan, Manchester United, and AS Roma, and had managed to win in all of those finals.
It is still unclear whether Mourinho will remain as AS Roma's coach for the next season or not.
