Roma coach Mourinho frustrated by Feyenoord 'advantage'
Roma coach Jose Mourinho says they're desperate to win the Europa Conference League final.
Roma meet Feyenoord in Tirana next week, with a clash against Torino between then.
“It's always the same. The history and importance of the competition are different, but this is the most important Final because we still have to play it," Mourinho said during UEFA's media day.
“It will be our 15th game in Europe this season. We began in August and we've travelled a lot. We have paid a high price in Serie A, throwing away points against teams that had had a week to prepare for the match.
“When I look at the table, I think about those games and referees' errors. The Conference League has been a tough competition, now we must make history by winning the cup."
He added: “At the beginning of the season, we thought Trabzonspor were among the candidates to win the competition, but at the same time, we had to wait for teams dropped from Europa League to see the level rise. We have always played with ambition, going all the way through."
On Feyenoord, Mourinho said: "Of course, a big one as well. We have to play an important match against Torino, and it's hard to rest the players.
"They have finished the season and can work quietly. I always say that the team must forget about these details in finals. These are games to win. I said this today, but I will tell you that they have no advantage on Wednesday [next week]."
