“I feel sorry for UEFA. They had to spend money to ship the Europa Conference League trophy. That trophy was supposed to stay in Rome, but now it could be taken to Florence (Fiorentina’s headquarters),” Jose Jose said. Mourinho spoke.
“Special person” borrowed UEFA to mock the rival city of Lazio. Coach Maurizio Sarri’s team has just received a bitter defeat in the round of 16 of the Europa Conference League team against AZ. Serie A still has one representative to participate in the quarter-finals of the European third-tier cup tournament, which is Fiorentina.
Immediately after helping Roma overcome Real Sociedad to reach the quarter-finals of the Europa League, Mourinho also mocked Lazio: “For me, a team that has been eliminated in one tournament should not participate in another tournament. For example, Lazio, after falling from the Europa League, they’ve just been knocked out in the Conference League.”
The lucky draw from UEFA put Roma in a fairly easy draw in the Europa League. The opponent of “Giallorossi” is Feyenoord, the club they just defeated in the Conference League final last season. If entering the semi-finals, Roma also only have to face Leverkusen of young coach Xabi Alonso or Union SG.
Fans thought about the dream scenario, when MU met Roma in the final. Jose Mourinho will reunite with the team that sacked him in 2018. In addition, the “Special One” also has the opportunity to help Roma win a second European title in a row, after being crowned in the Europa Conference League last season. .
The first leg quarter-final series takes place on April 13, the return leg a week later (April 20).
