Footage has emerged of referee Anthony Taylor and his family being harassed by Roma fans as they made their way through the airport on their way home from the Europa League final.

Taylor refereed yesterday's final between Sevilla and Roma, which took place at the Puskas Arena in Budapest.

Sevilla won 4-1 on penalties, after a 1-1 draw in normal time, in what was an incredibly heated game, with 14 yellow cards dished out and nearly 30 minutes of stoppage time.

The big story from the match came after, as clips showed Jose Mourinho waiting for Taylor in the car park and shouting expletives at the official.


Whatever about Mourinho's actions, the behaviour of the Roma fans towards Taylor, and what appears to be is wife and daughter, are horrible and show, in stark clarity, the abusive attitudes towards referees in football.

"I have to fight for these lads and therefore not say objectively that I will remain," said Mourinho after the match.


"I spoke to the club in December when I had that approach from the Portuguese national team.

"I have not had any contact with anyone else since then. I have a year left on my contract and this is the situation.

"We're physically exhausted, mentally drained, feeling dead because we believe it's an unjust defeat with numerous debatable incidents.

"We are dead tired, but proud. I always say you can lose a football match, but never your dignity or professionalism...

"I lost this one, but I return home prouder than ever this time. The lads gave absolutely everything this season."
