Speaking after ousted Leicester, β€œI am very emotional. This for us is our Champions League,” Mourinho said after his side won 2-1 on aggregate.

β€œWhen you work in Rome, live in Rome and breathe Rome, you breathe this club because it is the real club of the city.

β€œI felt from day one it is huge … but no victories and not many finals. The history is not related to the social dimension of the club.

β€œWe managed to build an OK team that grew step by step so we could beat a Premier League [team]. Of course, I have had bigger moments than this but I am not feeling for myself, I am feeling for the people and my players.”

Mourinho guided former clubs Inter Milan and Porto to Champions League titles, before winning the Europa League with Manchester United in 2017.

He joined Roma in May 2021 and it is the first time they have reached a final in European competition since 1991 when they were runners-up in the Uefa Cup.
