Mourinho helps Roma win a major European trophy 

By Laurentius Murenga

Jose Mourinho became the first ever manager to win European trophies with four different clubs after leading Roma to the Europa Conference League victory against Feyenoord on Wednesday .

Nicolo Zaniolo’s first half goal made the Portuguese couch to make history by winning the tournament helping him add another record to his name . He was the first couch to reach European finals with four different clubs . Mourinho won the champions league with Porto and Inter Milan before winning the Europa League in 2017 with Manchester United .

Roma has not won any silverware since 2007-08 when they won Coppa Italia . Three decades passed before they clinched their hands on the first ever European Conference League trophy. No Serie A team has ever won a UEFA club competition since Mourinho led Inter Milan beat Bayern Munich in the 2010 champions league finals and he has done it again by making a Serie A club win another European cup after a decade .

Roma’s success include three league titles in 1941 -42 ,1982-83 and 2000-01 plus nine Coppa Italia titles and two supercoppa Italiana titles . In European competitions , Roma lifted the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in 1960-61 and Jose Mourinho helped them add the first ever European Conference league cup and he will surely try to add on more trophies.
