Jose Mourinho’s Roma has won Europa Conference League.

Final score is Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

Nicolo Zaniolo’s tidy finish and a massive save from goalkeeper Rui Patricio helped Jose Mourinho’s Roma side get the better of Feyenoord in Tirana

This is the first Europa Conference League final

Jose Mourinho became the first ever manager to win European trophies with four different clubs after leading Roma to Europa Conference League glory against Feyenoord.

The Portuguese coach had already won the Champions League with Porto and Inter Milan, as well as the Europa League with Manchester United in 2017. He was already the first to reach European finals with four different clubs, and Nicolo Zaniolo’s first-half goal let his boss write his name into history.

It was far from straightforward, though, with Feyenoord giving as good as they got, particularly in the second half. Roma owed a lot to goalkeeper Rui Patricio and impressive centre-back Chris Smalling, but Mourinho’s men held on in the end despite their opponents’ pressure.
