Roma goalkeeper Rui Patricio: Mourinho has taught me so much

Roma goalkeeper Rui Patricio has enjoyed his year with manager Jose Mourinho.

Roma will face Feyenoord in the Europa Conference League final next Wednesday in Tirana.

Rui Patricio said, "My opinion is stronger. It's been an amazing year of learning. It's been great to work with coach Mourinho, with no doubts that everything we do and everything we fight for is to win, which is why we managed to reach a European final.

“I'm in a European final for the first time at club level. I'm definitely very happy and I want to keep learning from him.

“It's definitely something to be proud of because it's always been one of my main objectives – to reach finals, especially European finals. Since the beginning of the season, we've always had the goal of reaching the final. When we're playing in a competition, whatever it is, we have to do everything we can to win it.

"We've reached a European final. That's a very good thing and every player's dream, but next year we have to be fighting for new trophies. That's what drives us and that's what has to happen. We're in a top-level sport at a club which has all the right conditions to compete for titles, and that has to be our purpose every day. We have to always work at our best so we can make it happen."
