Mourinho: It's an unjust defeat with numerous debatable incidents

Roma manager Jose Mourinho has lashed out at the game referee after losing to Sevilla on penalties in the UEFA Europa League final.

"I had said that we will leave either with the title or dead. Yes, we are dead. We're physically exhausted, mentally drained, feeling dead because we believe it's an unjust defeat with numerous debatable incidents.

"It was an intense, masculine, vibrant game with a referee who seemed Spanish. It was yellow, yellow, yellow all the time.

The injustice is that [Sevilla midfielder Erik] Lamela should have received a second yellow card, but it didn't happen, and then he took a penalty," Mourinho said, Football Italia reported.

Sevilla won the Europa League cup for the seventh time, and Roma played in the final of this football tournament for the second time and lost for the second time.
