Roma manager Jose Mourinho commented on the heartbreaking loss in Budapest after the Giallorossi left defeated with Sevilla.

In his post-match interview with Sky Sport, Mourinho said, “Tonight we died of mental and physical fatigue, there are so many episodes to talk about. Without the trophy in our hands, we are dead tired and proud.”

“You can lose a game, but never your professionalism. I won five finals and lost this one, but I’ve never been more proud than I am tonight. The guys gave it all.”

“The truth is that we are all very sad, with or without crying the truth is this. We will get home dead of tiredness and dead because of tonight’s unfair refereeing display.”

“Great game, great final, intense, gritty, vibrant, but the referee seemed Spanish. Too many yellow cards for us then he doesn’t give Lamela his second yellow allowing him to take a penalty in the end.”

“My future? I’m serious, I said a few months ago that if I had contact with any other club I would say it to the ownership, I wouldn’t do anything secretly. I talked to the club in December when Portugal asked about me, so far I haven’t talked to anyone because there is no team I’ve spoken to.”

“I can’t say objectively that I will stay. I have another year of contract with Roma, the situation is clear.”
