Kumbulla warns Feyenoord: Tirana will be behind Roma and Mourinho

Roma defender Marash Kumbulla admits there's a lot of excitement amongst the players for next week's Europa Conference League final.

Roma will meet Feyenoord in Tirana for the final.

Kumbulla wrote for Il Corriere dello Sport: "I tell you sincerely, I'm not in the skin. At the beginning of the season, when I heard that the final would be played in Tirana, I set the goal of achieving it.

"For me who was born in Italy to an Albanian family, it was like a sign of destiny. Fortunately, dreams come true. And now it will be up to us to complete the work by beating Feyenoord, even if we know that it will not be easy.

"For the Albanians this final represents an opportunity. And I know for sure that their welcome will be exemplary. With the Italians they have established a very solid bond.

"In Tirana, apart from the Feyenoord fans who will rightly support their team, we will have a good part of the public on our side. Even our Premier League is in love with Mourinho.

"Play? It would be nice, I would be a liar if I said that I do not hope to play this game, at least for a few minutes. But the final decision is up to the coach and it's up to us to always respect it."
