I don't want to be a Roma legend - Mourinho

AS Roma manager, Jose Mourinho has made it clear that becoming a legend at the Italian club is not something he is interested in, thesportsbay.com reports.

After guiding the Italian club to yet another European Cup final, Mourinho announced this.

The Serie A team overcame Bayer Leverkusen 1-0 on the road to the Europa League championship.

After defeating the Bundesliga team, Mourinho has now led Roma to back-to-back European championship games.

The Portuguese player’s most recent final with the Giallorossi is his second in Roma and his sixth overall.

Last season, Roma won the Europa Conference League’s debut season after being led to victory by the former Manchester United manager.

According to Football Italia, the Roma manager does not want to go down in the club’s history.

“My concern isn’t marking my place in the Roma history books,” he said per Football Italia via Sky Sport after the game against Leverkusen.

“It’s helping these kids to grow, to achieve important things. It’s also helping the Roma fans who have given me so much since day one. It’s an immense joy to get to another final.”

The Portuguese gaffer also thanked his players for their performance on the night.

The win was “In the small details,” Mourinho added. “If we don’t have Smalling on the bench, maybe we don’t win this game.”
