Sevilla midfielder Ivan Rakitic spoke about Roma boss Jose Mourinho in anticipation of the Europa League final.

“I’ve played many times against Mourinho’s teams,” Rakitic told Sky Sport. “t’s a shame we never worked together, it would have been great. I would have loved to get to know him in everyday life, but it was never possible.”

“I respect him a lot. I believe he is one of the best coaches in the history of football. As a team we hope to have fun, but of course we also hope to win.”
