Guidetti hails ‘spectacular’ triumph

Words almost failed Celta Vigo striker John Guidetti after the Galicians’ “spectacular” Copa del Rey triumph over Real Madrid.

It was Guidetti’s shot that Danilo ricocheted into the back of Kiko Casilla’s for Celta’s opening goal in their 2-2 draw with Madrid on Wednesday, and the Swede revelled in the “party” atmosphere at Balaidos. 

“It was very good, this party, this atmosphere…” he said after the game.

“The match was very difficult because Madrid are very strong, but this stadium … Look at it, it’s spectacular, I like it!

“A big thank-you must go to all of Vigo and Spain! I like playing here, I like living in Vigo … I’m Galician now!”
