Immediately after full-time in Budapest, Roma boss Jose Mourinho was asked about his future plans.

Following a devastating defeat on penalties in the Europa League final with Sevilla, Sky Sport inquired about Mourinho’s future.

“I want to stay at Roma,” said the Portuguese technician. “But my players deserve more and I also deserve more. I’m a little tired of being a coach, a man of communication, the face of the club that says we were robbed after every game. I’m tired of acting on every front.”

“Next year we won’t be playing the Champions League and that’s a good thing because we’re not made for it.”

“And let’s hope that [referee Anthony] Taylor, only officiates games in the Champions League and does the same bullshit there that he did tonight, and not in the Europa League.”
