Jose Mourinho fumes at referee Anthony Taylor’s performance in the Europa League final against Sevilla, says lots of yellow was distributed.

Roma boss Jose Mourinho says he is not pleased with Anthony Taylor’s decisions in their loss to Sevilla in the Europa League.

Roma took the lead in the game through former Juventus star Dybala before Sevilla equalized in the second half of the game.

The game ended in penalty shootout which went in favour of the Spanish team Sevilla.

“It was an intense, vibrant game with a referee who seemed Spanish. It was yellow, yellow, yellow all the time,” Mourinho said.

The defeat meant Roma failed to qualify for next season’s Champions League and prompted questions about whether the 60-year-old would remain in the Italian capital, having been linked with Paris St Germain.

“I have to fight for these lads and therefore not say objectively that I will remain,” Mourinho told Sky Sports Italia.

“I spoke to the club in December when I had that approach from the Portuguese national team.

“I have not had any contact with anyone else since then. I have a year left on my contract and this is the situation.”

Despite the defeat Mourinho said he was proud of his team’s performance and acknowledged that the season had taken its toll.

“We’re physically exhausted, mentally drained, feeling dead because we believe it’s an unjust defeat with numerous debatable incidents.

“We are dead tired, but proud. I always say you can lose a football match, but never your dignity or professionalism…

“I lost this one, but I return home prouder than ever this time. The lads gave absolutely everything this season.”
