  1. Goodbye


    And on that note that's us done.

    Another European final. Another victory for Jose Mourinho and his Roma team.

    You can read all about how they won their first major European trophy by beating Feyenoord in the inaugural Europa Conference League final in Tirana in our report.

    Who would have thought this was possible when he took the Roma job just over 12 months ago and even this term when his side were were embarrassed 6-1 in Norway by Bodo/Glimt in the group stage?

  2. 'We had to write history' - Mourinho

    Now time for a quick word from Roma boss Jose Mourinho speaking to Sky Sport Italia: "We have written history. This is a competition we believed we could win since the start.

    "Many things are going through my head right now. I feel like a true Romanista. I knew the moment I arrived what it meant to the people. They had been waiting for something like this.

    "This was not work tonight, this was history. We had to write history. We wrote it.

    "I am staying, there's no doubt about that. We need to see what our owners, who are fantastic people, want to do next season because this is history, but we can build a special project. Now I'm going to go on holiday, sit on the beach and think about it all for a while."

    FT: Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

    Now time to hear from the Roma captain Lorenzo Pellegrini, speaking to Sky Sport Italia: "We are a real team, we proved that. Now we have to celebrate and then start again, which is always difficult after a great victory, but a real team wins, celebrates and starts again.

    "I said yesterday that I never would’ve imagined at the age of 25 to achieve this with the Roma jersey and the captain’s armband. It is a wonderful moment."

    This stat is a tad mind boggling....

    Teams coached by Jose Mourinho have now gone 423 minutes since last conceding in a major European final, with Henrik Larsson the last the player to score against one of his sides in such a match (57th minute for Celtic in the Uefa Cup against Porto in 2003).

  9. 'Football is a religion there and they will feel like heroes'

    FT: Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

    More from former Chelsea and England midfielder Joe Cole: "Roma have got an outstanding manager in Jose. I had a good half an hour with him and he was in great form before this game.

    "Roma have gone through a few managers, lost a direction and an identity. He's loved in the city but there is a way to go. These scenes now, especially for the lads who've come through the ranks at Roma – you cannot go to that city and not feel the club.

    "Football is a religion there and they will feel like heroes and be remembered, but this is the start of the journey. Jose will be back in the office, planning whether they can have a go at the Europa League and get closer to titles."

  10. 'Football is about winning and Mourinho wins'

    FT: Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

    Former Manchester United and England midfielder Owen Hargreaves: " [Jose] Mourinho is almost at his best when he is the underdog like you saw initially when he was at Porto.

    "They are not going to blow people away, that is not his style of football but he gets the job done. Football is about winning and Mourinho wins.

    "Mourinho is best under pressure. The man is a serial winner, that's a fact. Credit to him: he's had a couple of difficult spells but not given up. This will mean a lot to him. He'll be so proud of his players, his coaching staff and getting a trophy with Roma. It's a huge achievement."

    Former Chelsea and England midfielder Joe Cole: "This is going to be fantastic. He [Jose Mourinho] said it wasn't part of the plan. The plan was to build this team it was the start of the project.

    "Nicolo Zaniolo is a real talent. One of the biggest in Italy but he has done his ACL in both needs so he has had such treacherous journey back but his goal will have made all the months in the gym worthwhile.

    "If he can stay fit he can become a big star because he is a super talent."

  13. 'They played like Roman warriors'

    FT: Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

    Former Chelsea and England midfielder Joe Cole on BT Sport: "It's all about this beautiful, well-supported club – massive under-achievers for a club of that size.

    "The great Francesco Totti couldn't do this, but these players can. They played like Roman warriors. They were throwing their bodies in the way, defended like animals.

    "The back five were absolutely fantastic and Rui Patrício was outstanding. It's just absolutely beautiful – scenes like these make me want to get back into the game."

  14. 'Roma were the better team'

    FT: Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

    Former England midfielder Owen Hargreaves on BT Sport: "It's fantastic for these players – they've worked incredibly hard all season.

    "Let's be honest, they were the better team. Feyenoord had a decent campaign; they pushed [tonight], they dominated the ball, but defensively Roma were so good.

    "Rui Patrício made a magnificent save in the second half which made a big difference in the game."
