Jose Mourinho has guided AS Roma to their first-ever Uefa competition triumph, with the Italian side beating Feyenoord 1-0 in the final of the Europa Conference League in Tirana.

Nicolo Zaniolo scored the only goal of the game, with the Dutch side twice seeing efforts rebound off the woodwork in the second half. The Italian attacking midfielder fired home from his side’s first chance in the 32nd minute as Jose Mourinho’s men sealed their first silverware since the 2008 Coppa Italia.

It proved a typical Mourinho-style triumph as Roma sat deep and soaked up plenty of pressure before cruising through the second half with the minimum of fuss. The Dutch side, who last won the Uefa Cup in 2002, dominated the early possession but failed to create any meaningful chances and were punished when Zaniolo chested down a cross from Roger Ibanez and put his side in front.

FT: Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

Jose Mourinho has managed in five European finals. He has won all five. He has not conceded a goal in the last four.

Whatever you think of the man, that is some record.

Jose setting a few more records this evening. He may have dropped away from the top level, but he is still relevant.

From our very own Richard Jolly...

Jose Mourinho has won European trophies 19 years apart (2003-2022). Second greatest distance between first and last European trophies for a manager after Sir Alex Ferguson (25 - 1983-2008).

Probably the best player on the pitch tonight. The entire Roma defence was absolutely sensational this evening.

Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

90+5 mins: Spinazzola goes in the book. He won’t care a jot.

Feyenoord lump it forward but it’s beyond everyone! Is that it?

Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

90+4 mins: Feyenoord win themselves a free-kick deep inside the Roma half. Perfect chance to load the box once more as keeper Bijlow comes forward too.

Roma hack it away but there is no one up there to capitalise on the open goal. Shomurodov manages to get there and hold it up for 30 seconds or so.

Feyenoord have it back.

Into the final 90 seconds.
