Portugal coach Jose Mourinho has reached the European final for the eighth time in his coaching career after Roma beat Leicester City 2-1 on aggregate and reached the Europa League final. If he leads the team to the championship, he will be the first coach to win the new tournament.
Abraham’s goal helped Roma beat their opponents, Roma reached the European final for the first time in 31 years, and Mourinho’s eighth. The Portuguese coach has the chance to add another trophy to his trophy cabinet if they beat Feyenoord in the Europa League final.
The Portuguese has played in two Champions League finals, once at Porto and once at Inter Milan; twice in the Europa League (UEFA Cup) finals, once at Porto and once at Manchester United. They have won the championship 4 times. He also played in the European Super Cup 3 times, losing all of them.
Mourinho became the first manager in history to lead four clubs to a European final.
Mourinho holds the record for the most European semi-final appearances and was the first coach to reach the final of three major cup competitions, which brought together the best clubs in Europe. The “special one” is also expected to be the first coach in history to lift the new triple trophy.
