Jose Mourinho, the Portuguese coach of Roma, raised more doubts about his future after losing to Sevilla 1-4 on penalties (original and extra time 1-1) on Wednesday in the final match of the Europa League competition "Europa League" in football.

The 60-year-old's first loss was in a final of a continental competition after his success in 5 previous finals, during which he won all possible titles: the Champions League twice (with Porto 2004 and Inter Milan in 2010), represented them in the Europa League (2003 with Porto with its former name UEFA Cup and 2017 with Manchester United) and the Conference League with Roma last year.

Mourinho, who was nominated by French media to coach Paris Saint-Germain, told reporters after the defeat: "I want to stay but my players deserve more, I deserve more. I don't want to fight anymore. I'm tired of being a coach, a spokesperson and a club spokesman," he said, adding that he wanted to stay but in better conditions "so I can give my best."

He explained that he had no contact from any club in Europe: "My future is not important at the moment. I'm serious, I said a few months ago that if I was in contact with any other club I would tell the owners, I wouldn't do anything in secret."

"I spoke to the club in December when Portugal expressed their desire to sign me (to coach the national team) and so far I haven't spoken to anyone because there is no team I have spoken to."

"Next season we won't play in the Champions League, maybe it's better, it's a paradox, but we're not ready for the Champions League. We still have a chance to qualify for a European championship, such as the Europa League," he said, referring to the Europa League and Conference League.

Roma are sixth qualified for the "Conference League" with 60 points, one point behind fifth-placed Atalanta qualified for the "Europa League" before the end of the season.

Roma plays with Spezia on Sunday, and Atalanta with Montsa on the same day during the last stage.

"Proud more than ever"

Mourinho insisted he had "never been so proud tonight" despite the loss to the Andalusian side.

"You can lose a game, but you can never lose your professionalism. I won 5 finals and lost this game, but I have never been more proud than I am tonight. The men did everything they could," believing the arbitration was "unfair."

"It was a very difficult game, with a very high competitive intensity, the pressure was clear against a team that has more solutions than us, but I have to defend my sons and get refereeing like this in a European final, it's really difficult."

Mourinho: "Sei una f*****a disgrazia!!️"

"Congratulations to Sevilla, but also congratulations to my players. The children should go home safely, proudly because they did what they did. These are my children from Budapest."

Mourinho was consecrated as a national hero by Roma fans after winning their first-ever major European title last season when he won the Conference League, a victory that left the veteran Portuguese shed tears.

A deep emotional relationship developed between this coach and the fans of the "Wolves" team, who have waited since 2008 to see Roma win a title, specifically since winning the domestic cup.

The defeat was clearly a painful experience for the Portuguese coach, who awarded his medal to a fan in the stands after the medal ceremony.

"That's what I did, I don't want silver medals and I don't keep them, so I gave them up," he said.
