It is clear that Roma and Feyenoord have a history, because the two teams faced each other in the final of the first edition of the Conference League last year, when Roma won 1-0.
In the run-up to the quarter-finals in the Europa League, it was mainly about last season’s final, a defeat that the Netherlands did not seem to grasp. Roma coach Jose Mourinho got back into it last week, after his side lost the first leg 1-0.
The Portuguese addressed NOS journalist Joep Schreuder at the press conference. Mourinho told Schroeder: “I cried for the last 10 months. You shouldn’t do that. You can’t win a game you lose. If you lose, I sleep well. I won’t have nightmares for 10 months.” .
“The only problem today is that the match is not over yet. We are only halfway there,” the Portuguese pointed out about the second leg.

And after Roma won the second leg last night, it turns out Jose Mourinho hasn’t forgotten Jupp Schroeder. The NOS journalist received a Conference Cup keychain from the Portuguese with the AS Roma crest on it.
“I have a present for you. Lovely, isn’t it?” Mourinho smiled, repeating his advice from last week. “Don’t cry over defeat. Think about the next game.”
The Portuguese also paid tribute to Feyenoord. “I want to congratulate them. It’s a good team, with good players and a good coach. They will become champions and they made it very difficult for us.”
“Subtly charming internet specialist. Avid writer. Friendly alcohol guru. Music ninja. Devoted social media fanatic.”
