Jose Mourinho says despite wanting to stay at AS Roma for the last year of his contract, he cannot confirm the desire right now.

The Portuguese suffered a first European final on Wednesday night with Roma losing on penalties to Sevilla in the Europa League final.

Almost immediately after receiving it, Mourinho removed the silver medal draped around his neck by Uefa president Aleksander Ceferin, walked towards the stands, and delivered it to a young admirer in the front row.

“I only keep the gold ones,” Mourinho declared afterwards, still enraged after the loss to the Spanish side.

Mourinho was also seen criticising Anthony Taylor in the Puskas Arena garage in Budapest, Hungary, as his squad prepared to leave.

Mourinho, who was also shown a yellow card during the game, might face a multi-match ban from future European games, according to Uefa.

But it’s unclear if those games will be with Roma or another club.

“On Monday I’m going on vacation and vacation is vacation. But until then we have time to meet and to talk,” Mourinho said.

“Right now I can’t say objectively that I’ll stay. But I would like to. I want to stay at Roma. But my players deserve more and I deserve more, too.”

Mourinho has a year more left on his contract with the Italian club and was looking to add the Europa League title to his laurels in his last years at the club having won the Conference League last season.
