Sevilla head coach Jose Luis Mendilibar praised his club’s Europa League record but warned that history won’t be enough against Roma in Wednesday’s final.
Sevilla have played six and won six finals of the Europa League since the first in 2006.
Roma’s head coach Jose Mourinho has a 5-0 career mark in finals of the three major European club competitions, dating to 2003 and Porto’s UEFA Cup triumph.
Mourinho actually has more European title wins than Sevilla coach Jose Luis Mendilibar has total games managed in those same competitions. The 62-year-old Mendilibar’s career is peaking since joining then-struggling Sevilla just two months ago.
Neither Sevilla nor Roma can finish in the top four of their domestic leagues that would have ensured qualifying for the Champions League.
Their only path to the Champions League next season is taking the group-stage place protected for the Europa League winner.
Replacing former Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli in March, Mendilibar became Sevilla’s third coach this season with the team just two points clear of the La Liga relegation zone.
Mendilibar’s Sevilla have lost only two of 11 league games, are one point off seventh place going into the final round this weekend, and are unbeaten in the Europa League after eliminating Man United — despite trailing 2-0 after 83 minutes at Old Trafford in the first leg — and Juventus.
