Mourinho and AS Roma conquer Europe after winning the Europa Conference League!

One of the most excellent managers of all time, Jose ‘The Special One’ Mourinho, has finally revived his career. After being humiliated in his previous two campaigns with hopeless Manchester United and impractical Tottenham Hotspur, many doubted his credentials as a manager. While being sacked is no new news to Mourinho, his inability to win something worthwhile with both the English clubs damaged his reputation. Desperate to regain his lost respect, Mourinho found a chance of redemption at AS Roma. The Romans were delighted to welcome their manager after the departure of Paulo Fonseca. After winning the final, Mourinho had won all that European football could have offered him.

The final of the Europa Conference League was between Roma vs Feyenoord held in Air Albania Stadium. Mourinho had unique plans for Roma on the night of the final. With their 3-4-1-2 formation, he had instructed them to defend him until the half of the first half of the match. He had changed the instructions of their gameplay, letting Feyenoord get off guard during their attacking trap. Pellegrini, Roma’s captain and their best centre midfielder had, scanned the pitch and played a beautiful pass into the gap and directed it towards Zaniolo had messed up the chest pass, but he was quick enough to regain the control of the ball and played a simple but surprising flick in between of the centre back and goalkeeper into the net, getting a lead for Roma in the game. Feyenoord was in a dilemma after the quick escalation of Roma’s attack, which Mourinho had planned. Until halftime Roma was in attacking mode but had reduced the intensity. 

Once the second half started, Feyenoord was ready to defend as they had substituted their wingers, hoping for a loose ball at the time of counter, but the Special One was planning a different approach for Feyenoord. Roma had designed an all-defence tactic for the second half, giving absolutely no chance for Feyenoord to attack. Feyenoord tried to get some shots on target, but Rui Patricio, the Portuguese goalkeeper, was rock-solid standing ahead of Roma’s goal, letting no-ball go past him into the net. After the final whistle, Roma had lifted the trophy leaving Mourinho in tears.
