Owen: “Football is about winning and Mourinho wins”

Jose Mourinho, on Wednesday, became the first manager to win all three major European competitions after his side Roma defeated Feyenoord 1-0 in the Europa Conference League final.

The victory gave Roma their first major European trophy and made it five wins for Mourinho in five European finals.

“Football is about winning and Mourinho wins,” said former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves on BT Sport.

“He’s a serial winner and he has brought this Roma team to life.”

It was the 26th trophy of Mourinho’s managerial career – 19 years after he masterminded Porto’s Uefa Cup win in 2003.

“The great thing about my career is that, aside from the Europa League with Manchester United, doing it with Porto, Inter and Roma is very, very, very special,” Mourinho, who was announced as Roma boss last May, said.

“It is one thing to win when everyone expects it, when you made the investments to win, but it’s quite another to win when something feels immortal, that feels truly special.

“This remains in the history of Roma, but also mine. I was told only I, Sir Alex [Ferguson] and Giovanni Trapattoni won trophies in three different decades. It makes me feel a little old, but it’s nice for my career.”
