100 percent! Remember Mourinho’s five matches in the European finals

Jose Mourinho wrote his name in history after he became the first coach to win the Champions League, the European League, and the European League, after the Roma team was crowned the winners in the last edition of the competition.

Nicolo Zaniolo’s goal secured a 1-0 win over Feyenoord and secured the end of Mourinho’s first season in Rome with titles, while also maintaining his perfect record in European finals.

Mourinho now manages teams in five European finals and has never finished on the losing side, winning titles with four different clubs.

We look back and remember all the successes of Special One.

Celtic 2-3 Porto – 2003 UEFA Cup Final

Porto was a rising force under Mourinho in his early years and won a treble during his first full season in office, ending the season with a record points in La Liga and then adding the Portuguese Cup and the European Cup to the cabinet.

Porto met Celtic in the final of the last tournament in Seville, with the two teams playing an exciting final in Spain.

The Portuguese team advanced twice through Derli and Dmitriy Alinchev, but Celtic came back to realize through the brilliance of Henrik Larsson.

The two teams were unable to separate during regular time, before Porto found a late winner in the extra period.

Derley criticized his second goal after Bobo Baldi was sent off by Celtic, Porto winning the European Cup for the first time and Mourinho their first European title.

Monaco 0-3 Porto – 2004 UEFA Champions League Final

The following season saw Porto compete in the Champions League, and Mourinho’s men overcame the prospects of being crowned European champions.

Mourinho’s mad dash on the touchline at Old Trafford after wiping out Manchester United remains a vivid memory of their European path, which ended in a final against his surprising team-mate Monaco.

Porto witnessed riots in the final for Mourinho, winning 3-0 with a superb performance full of pressure and a clever attacking move.

Carlos Alberto opened the scoring by instinctively finishing off the Portuguese champions, before Deco added to the score in the second half.

A convincing win was completed when Dmitriy Alynchev eventually netted third for Porto, becoming the second player to score in both the UEFA Cup and UEFA Champions League finals.

Special One has really arrived.

Bayern Munich 0-2 Inter Milan – 2010 UEFA Champions League Final

Mourinho took charge of Inter Milan in 2008, after a successful stint in England with Chelsea that included back-to-back Premier League titles.

Domestic honors followed again as Inter won the Scudetto in a row under Mourinho, the second coming alongside European glory.

Mourinho’s attacking, rebounding team managed to eliminate Chelsea, CSKA Moscow and Barcelona to reach the final, which formed a confrontation with Bayern Munich at the Bernabeu.

Diego Milito’s double secured a 2-0 win and Champions League success for the Nerazzurri, who ended a 45-year wait to be crowned European champions.

The win also marked the first hat-trick in Italian football history, as Inter added the biggest club football prize to the Serie A and Copa Italia titles.

Ajax 0-2 Manchester United – UEFA Europa League Final 2017

Mourinho led Manchester United to a cup double during his debut season at Old Trafford, winning the League Cup and Europa League in the 2016-2017 season.

United met a developing side Ajax in the final in Stockholm and proved too good for their inexperienced opponents, with Paul Pogba – signed in a world record ยฃ89m deal last summer – opening the scoring with a skewed effort.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan added his second and sixth goal in the European League season, as he converted a rebound from a corner kick to double the Red Devils’ lead.

Prior to forming the European League, the win made United the fifth team to win a full range of European titles, joining Ajax, Chelsea, Juventus and Bayern Munich.

Roma 1-0 Feyenoord – 2022 UEFA Europa League Final

The inaugural Europa League season ended with more success for Mourinho in Europe, winning the final for the fifth time in a row as Roma beat Feyenoord in Albania.

Nicolo Zaniolo scored the only goal in a match that saw Roma forced to defend for lengthy periods, securing a narrow victory and their first continental title since winning the Old Fairs Cup in 1961.

Mourinho became the first man to win European titles with four different clubs, while the 26th title was in the managerial career of one of the most successful football coaches of all time.

His task now is to restore Roma to a place among the elite of European football.
