Roma coach Jose Mourinho was in tears before the final whistle blew for their Europa Conference League semifinal triumph against Leicester City.
Tammy Abraham struck the winner for the Giallorosso to reach the final 2-1 on aggregate.
"When you work in Rome, live in Rome and breathe Rome, you breathe this club because it is the real club of the city," Mourinho later said.
“I felt from day one it is huge. But no victories and not many finals. The history is not related to the social dimension of the club.
“I am very emotional. Of course I have had bigger moments than this, but I am not feeling for myself, I am feeling for the people and my players. This for us, is our Champions League."
#Mourinho a fine partita era praticamente in lacrime. Perché una vittoria é sempre una vittoria, e questa vale davvero tanto. Per lui e per la Roma. #ASRoma#RomaLeicesterpic.twitter.com/l5sokUlEbW— Jacopo Aliprandi (@AliprandiJacopo) May 5, 2022
