Mourinho’s Roma Wins First UEFA Europa Conference League Title

Jose Mourinho had described Roma as “a giant club" lacking a trophy room to match the team's social dimension and passionate fan base.

The Giallorossi claimed their first European title in more than six decades Wednesday to crown Mourinho’s first season coaching in the Italian capital.

Roma beat Feyenoord 1-0 to win the inaugural edition of the third-tier Europa Conference League.

It’s Roma’s first European trophy since winning the 1961 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup

It’s also the first title of any kind for Roma since winning the 2008 Italian Cup.

Zaniolo’s goal started with a ball over the top from center back Gianluca Mancini that Zaniolo controlled with his chest.

An attacking midfielder, Zaniolo produced five goals and three assists in 10 Conference League games.

Roma had lost its two previous continental finals 1991 UEFA Cup and 1984 European Cup.
