Jose Mourinho on losing the Europa League final v Sevilla: “If I say what I think, I’ll be banned for ten games”

Roma boss Jose Mourinho has stated that if he speaks his mind about the Europa League final against Sevilla last season, he will get banned for ten games.

The Giallorossi had lost the final on penalties at the end of last season, as Roger Ibanez and Gianluca Mancini missed their spot-kicks and Mourinho lost a European final for the very first time in his managerial career. But the aftermath of the game saw Mourinho criticise referee Anthony Taylor for his decisions and he even went on to abuse the English official, who was then heckled at the Rome airport after the game.

Mourinho picked up a ban for his behaviour but he was recently asked about the game in an interview with Sky Italia (via La Gazzetta dello Sport) and he stated: “If I say what I think they’ll give me a 10-match ban.”

This was probably his way of criticising the officiating in the game once again, as Roma were denied a penalty in the game and Mourinho had spoken about some of the decisions in the game in an interview that he gave to Corriere dello Sport recently. It is clear that the Portuguese will take some time to forget about that day.
