Selig received his first yellow card in the 45th minute of the second half, and was sent off with a second yellow card just five minutes later.
After the game, Mourinho said, “I put on a microphone and went to the game. I recorded everything from the moment I left the locker room to the moment I came back. I protected myself.”
He continued, “It was the worst referee. It was technically terrible. Empathy, communication skills, awareness skills are all zero. 2nd warning at 95 minutes? , I had to stay still for 30 minutes,” he criticized.
“I’ve dealt with a lot of bad referees. Usually when I talk about referees, it’s because they have a direct impact on the game,” he said. This is also evidence of Rome’s weakness.”안전놀이터
Mourinho advanced to the final by winning the first and second games 1-0 on aggregate against Leverkusen in the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League held on the 19th. It is the second consecutive European competition final following last season’s UEFA Europa Conference League.
