Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho has explained the reason he shed tears at full-time after leading Roma to their first European Final for 31 years.

Tammy Abraham’s early goal was enough to end Leicester’s dream of becoming the original winners of the Europa Conference League and means the decider in Tirana, Albania, will be between Roma and Feyenoord.

‘Why did I shed a tear? Because I feel what they all feel,’ he said. ‘It’s a giant club without a trophy room for the social importance of this club.

‘I know what it means to these people and my emotion was for them. I’ve been lucky enough to be in more prestigious finals but this made me feel very special.

‘We have a sense of family. With age you become less selfish and more of a father or even a grandfather to some of them, I’m very happy for all of them. Rome is a red and yellow city, we’ll see the joy over the coming days. I’ve made a small contribution to that.’

Brendan Rodgers Accepts Set Piece 'Weakness'

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers said: ‘Our Achilles heel all season has been set pieces and it undid us again tonight. They are about organisation and determination and we lack physicality in those moments.

‘They had five players who were big threats from set pieces so there was always going to be a mismatch somewhere and it came to Ricardo Pereira marking Tammy.’
