The Special one has praised Leicester’s recent trophy haul and named it “amazing”. He also encouraged the Giallorossi fans to help knock the Foxes out of the semi-finals of the Europa League by saying: "Don't come to watch the game, come to play."

Jose Mourinho



have drawn the game against the Foxes 1-1 in the first leg at the King Power Stadium. Therefore, the second leg will be a winner-takes-all-battle.

Leicester are keen on winning the Europa Conference League and add it to the FA Cup and Community Shield trophies they got in 2021. Mourinho also praise the Foxes and their manager.

"What Leicester is doing is fantastic,"

said Mourinho in his press conference.

"Of course, what they did by winning the Premier League [in 2016] is amazing but after that the way the club grows at every level, arriving to now with one of the best training centres in Europe, the club is amazing.

"Brendan doesn't surprise me. With Liverpool, people forget what he did with much much less resources than what Liverpool has now. He did amazingly. And then the Scottish history [in his time at Celtic], people forget because people don't focus on the Scottish titles.

"Then to win the FA Cup with Leicester, even the Community Shield, the stability in the club and the way they played, it's a perfect feat with Leciester and Brendan. Very very good. But I hope tomorrow is for us and not for them."

The Special One also issued a rallying cry to the Giallorossi fans, with the Roma supporters eager to do their best in their 70,000 stadium.

"Obviously we want to play for us but I would like to play the game with them [the fans],"

the Portuguese coach added.

"You can go to the ground as fans and play the game.

"There are 70,000 fans who want to play. This is what I ask: don't come to the game to watch, come to play."
