Bryan Cristante after Conference League win: “We needed a leader like Mourinho.”

Roma midfielder Bryan Cristante highlighted the importance of having someone like Mourinho on the touchline as the capital club lifted their first European trophy in over 50 years in last night’s win over Feyenoord.

“The coach gave us the experience we needed, we are a fairly young team and we needed a leader who knew what to do in difficult times, knew how to win in Europe,” Cristante told Sky Sport after the game.

“Then you have to win the finals yourself, they are 50-50 and the details make the difference.”

“This year we played a lot and we played many difficult games, I think in the end you could see it tonight that even in times of difficulty we stayed focused and we all worked together to achieve this great result.”
