Historical context for Mourinho:
The 59-year-old became the first coach to take four different teams to a European final after his previous exploits with Porto, Inter Milan and Manchester United. And he now has a chance to go one further and end Roma’s 14-year trophy drought.
The Portuguese chief – who was appointed by the Italian club in a bid to win silverware last summer – was visibly emotional at the conclusion of their last four tie against The Foxes. He claimed that his emotion was for the club’s fans as they celebrated a historic night.
Speaking after the match, Mourinho said: “Why did I shed a tear? Because I feel what [the fans] all feel. It’s a giant club without a trophy room for the social importance of this club. I know what it means to these people and my emotion was for them. I’ve been lucky enough to be in more prestigious finals but this made me feel very special.
“We have a sense of family. With age you become less selfish and more of a father or even a grandfather to some of them, I’m very happy for all of them. Rome is a red and yellow city, we’ll see the joy over the coming days. I’ve made a small contribution to that.”
