Roma coach Jose Mourinho feels that the Champions League final he won with Inter Milan in 2010 is a part of history, but that now it is time for the Nerazzurri to write another chapter.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN after the Giallorossi’s 2-2 draw with Salernitana, via FCInter1908, the coach gave his thoughts on his old team Inter being back in European club football’s biggest match.

The last time Inter were in the Champions League final, Mourinho was at the helm.

The club and coach have each had winding paths since then.

The Nerazzurri have had a very up-and-down thirteen years in the intervening period, to put it mildly.

Meanwhile, Mourinho has coached the likes of Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur.

Now, Inter are back in the Champions League final. They’ll face Manchester City for a chance to win the trophy that they did with Mourinho in 2010.

Meanwhile, Mourinho looks to have found a new comfort zone for himself at the Giallorossi.

The Portuguese coach has his own European final to worry about. Roma will face Sevilla for a chance to win the Europa League at the end of this month.

For his part, Mourinho feels that Inter now must write a new chapter in their history under Simone Inzaghi. This would follow up what they did under him more than a decade ago.

Mourinho: Time For Inter Milan To Write The Next Chapter

Inter have an opportunity to announce their return to the very top.

The last time the Nerazzurri were the champions of Europe, things looked very different. Getting back there would be a major vindication after no shortage of difficulties.

The same would be true for Mourinho and Roma winning the Europa League. The Giallorossi already won the Europa Conference League last season.

Asked about his old team being back in the Champions League final, Mourinho replied “That’s history.”

“Now it’s time for them to write their own new chapter,” he added.
