Montella: Sevilla growing as team

Sevilla Coach Vincenzo Montella has hailed his side’s ‘signs of growth’ in the past fortnight after advancing into the Copa del Rey semi-finals.

Montella’s side defeated Atletico Madrid 5-2 on aggregate, while also winning 3-0 away at Espanyol to follow up on back-to-back league defeats to Real Betis and Alaves.

“It was a great victory,” the former Roma and Milan Coach told reporters after the game.

“It was a great evening for all of us. Our spirit is to have attacking players like Navas, who did very well at full-back.

“We'll celebrate his performance but get back to work as of Wednesday. The team have shown steady signs of growth and I'm very happy with this. Now we have to keep improving.”
