Following the heated game, Mourinho was captured on camera engaging in a confrontation with Taylor in a car park, where he unleashed a foul-mouthed rant towards the official. The incident has led to UEFA taking disciplinary action against the Roma coach for his behaviour.

In addition to Mourinho’s charges, both AS Roma and Sevilla are facing several charges related to the conduct of their respective fans during the final.

The governing body will investigate and evaluate the conduct of supporters from both clubs to determine if any disciplinary measures need to be taken.

The day after the match, videos circulated on social media showing English referee Taylor and his family being harassed by Roma fans at Budapest Airport.
