Taylor was accused of ‘seeming Spanish’ for the number of yellow cards he doled out – 13, a record for a European final – after Mourinho’s Roma side were beaten on penalties by Sevilla in Budapest.
The Spanish side clinched a record extending seventh Europa League title after winning 4-1 in the shoot-out, following a 1-1 draw after extra time, but Mourinho. who gave his runner’s up medal to a Roma fan, was not about to make peace with his fate as he waited to angrily confront Taylor in the car park.
‘F***ing disgrace man, it’s a f***ing disgrace,’ Mourinho fumed, before switching to swear at the official in Italian. ‘F*** off,’ he continued.
Mourinho then approaches the mini-bus taking the referee away from the stadium where he snipes: ‘Congratulations, you f***ing disgrace’, before trudging off to the team bus.
