Jose Mourinho brands English referee a ‘f---ing disgrace’ in car park confrontation

Telegraph, 01 Jun 2023
Jose Mourinho confronted English referee Anthony Taylor in a car park on Wednesday night, branding him a “f---ing disgrace” after his Roma team lost the Europa League final to Sevilla.

Mourinho was seen in a clip shared by Sportitalia lambasting the referee for his “bulls---” decisions as Taylor tried to leave the Puskas Arena in Budapest.

Roma lost 4-1 on penalties but Mourinho was especially unhappy about the 14 cards Taylor issued in the game, a record for a European final.

After accusing Taylor of “seeming Spanish”, the Roma manager can be seen in the video approaching the match officials’ minibus and shouting “F---ing disgrace man, it’s a f---ing disgrace” before then switching to Italian to further berate Taylor.

He added: “Congratulations, you f---ing disgrace... F--- off.”
