The entire speech of Jose Mourinho at full-time of Roma’s loss to Sevilla has been revealed.
After reviewing the footage of Mourinho’s huddle speech, hearing impaired speech specialist Giuliano Callegari transcribed the emotional words in their entirety.
“Is there anyone who can tell me who’s talking? Or not? Nobody’s talking. I went over to visit my family, and heard some people talking about the ranking,” said the Special One.
“But the truth is I have come here for you. We’ve always been together, we’ve done everything together, we’ve talked about it, we’ve played one more time here and this is the ugly truth. The ugly truth. But my children have been coming with me for 20 years to my finals, since they were little. They stand right there, they’re crying. My sons who are 23 and 27 and come to watch their dad. You go home, there’s your dad, there’s your wife. They are all there.”
“We didn’t actually lose, we didn’t lose. The other day I told Lorenzo and Mancini. They came to me. I am safe here, I want to continue here for you, for all that I have given you. I want to stay here. That’s it. Here.”
“They have to focus on us… But I want to stay here with you. Now here we don’t have to think about what happened, we have to think about it at home. Heads up. We have been together here… Without crying. To me you are still my boys even after this loss. Football is football. Men are men. You are all men. Now we must go on.”
