Never thought I'd be quoting Mourinho - he has at times been too arrogant, too boastful, etc etc. But even now, one and a half weeks on, I think his quote, spoken in wonder as "You'll Never Walk Alone" rose from the Metropolitano like a prayer, sums up the whole weekend. And by weekend I mean the way the fans took over Madrid on the day, the way Virgil collapsed when Origi scored, the outcome of the match, the tears and the relief when it was all over, Hendo's totally boss trophy lift, that pic of Hendo with his feet atop the trophy, them disembarking from the plane, that PARADE - all of that, Mourinho's quote sums it up best, for me. He said (in a Portuguese lilt):
"Now, ziss is more beautiful zan what we can say. 's is beautiful."
