AS Roma of Serie A, an Italian professional football team led by Jose Mourinho (pictured), scored the winning goal in the 31st minute of the first half of the 2021-2022 Europa Conference League (UECL) final held at Tirana Air Albania Stadium in Albania on the 26th. We won 1-0 over Feyenoord (Netherlands). The UEFA Champions League (UCL) and the Europa League, which were established this season by the European Football Federation (UEFA), are a sub-game of the UEFA Europa League, leaving AS Roma as the first champion.

Mourinho led FC Porto in the Portuguese League in the 2003-2004 season and Inter Milan in Serie A in the 2009-2010 season to reach the top of the UCL twice. In the 2016-17 season, he took Manchester United in the English Premier League (EPL) to the top of the Europa League. With this victory, Mourinho became the first manager to lift all three UEFA-sponsored club trophies.

Mourinho, who was first considered the best manager in the world until the 2010s, experienced some ups and downs in the 2020s, such as being sacked from Tottenham Hotspur in the EPL. He took on a new challenge at Serie A Roma ahead of the season and performed well in the League and UECL, but his splendor was somewhat diminished. However, the victory reminded football fans once again that he is one of the greatest players who will leave a mark in world football history.
