Jose Mourinho furiously attacked referee Anthony Taylor in the car park after Roma’s Europa League final defeat to Sevilla.
Mourinho’s men took the lead in the Europa League final against Sevilla at the Puskas Arena football stadium in Budapest, Hungary, on Wednesday night through Paulo Dybala.
But the Serie A side was pegged back at the start of the second half by an own goal from Gianluca Mancini, with the game going to extra time and then penalties.
Bono, the goalkeeper for Sevilla, saved two penalty attempts before Argentina’s World Cup winner Gonzalo Montiel scored the game-winning penalty following a dramatic retake.
The game was a rough and bad-tempered affair, with referee Anthony Taylor issuing 13 yellow cards.
And the most ever in a Europa League game, and playing almost 30 minutes of stoppage time in total.
AS Roma head coach, Jose Mourinho has risked a UEFA ban and fine after confronting the Europa League officials in the stadium car park.
After Sevilla won the trophy, Mourinho stayed behind and approached Taylor and his refereeing team, including Michael Oliver, at the car park of the Puskas Arena.

“It is a f***ing disgrace, man. It is a f***ing disgrace, man,” Mourinho said before briefly switching to the Italian to continue his tirade.
“Even [UEFA Referees’ Committee chairman Roberto] Rosetti said it was not a penalty,” Mourinho said in Italian, referring to the overturned spot-kick on Ocampos, which referee Taylor reversed after checking the VAR monitor.
The former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager added, “F*** off, man. F***ing crooks, man. Congratulations, f***ing scandalous.”
At the beginning of the clip, captured by Sportitalia, a Roma official tries to escort Mourinho away, but the Portuguese spend a full minute sounding off before finally walking over to the Roma team bus with goalkeeper coach, Nuno Santos.
