Quite where Europe’s new third-tier club competition would rank in his list of achievements is certainly up for debate, although few would doubt a win would move to make up for a first season in charge that has proved difficult at times.
Way off the pace in keeping up with Serie A’s top four, Mourinho can endear himself to the club’s support should he claim a first title for the Giallorossi in 14 years.
Having not won a trophy himself since 2017, adding yet another to Mourinho’s list would vindicate the decision to appoint and subsequently back him from a Roma perspective.

The tertiary continental competition in Europe is in its first edition and has thrown some surprises towards the fans along the way, including the early elimination of a big club like Tottenham and Roma’s 6-1 hammering at the hands of minnows Bodo/Glimt in the group stages. The Giallorossi did not let that outlier affect them, though, as they finished at the top of Group C to progress to the knockout phase.
Roma narrowly beat Dutch side Vitesse 2-1 on aggregate in the Round of 16 before overturning a first-leg deficit to eliminate Bodo/Glimt from the quarter-finals with a 5-2 aggregate victory. Jose Mourinho’s men then managed to get the better of Premier League side Leicester City over two legs in the semi-finals to book a place in the final at Tirana as they hope to win their first trophy since 2008.
Feyenoord, meanwhile, finished at the top of Group E, which also consisted of Slavia Praha, Union Berlin and Maccabi Haifa, going unbeaten in the round (W4 D2). Arne Holt’s men then breezed past Partizan Belgrade (8-3 on aggregate) in the Round of 16 before defeating Slavia Praha 6-4 on aggregate in the quarter-finals.
The Dutch giants then oversaw a 3-2 aggregate win over French outfit Olympique de Marseille in the semi-finals to set up a date with Roma in Albania. Feyenoord have incredibly gone undefeated in the competition and will now be aiming to lift their first European trophy in 20 years.
