Montella treasures ‘special night’

Vincenzo Montella treasured Sevilla’s ‘special night’ after they ‘deservedly beat an extraordinary’ Manchester United side on Tuesday.

Montella’s decision to bring on Wissam Ben Yedder yielded two goals in a 2-1 victory, which not only dumped United out of the Champions League but took Sevilla into the quarter-finals for the first time in 60 years.

“I’m very happy. I thank the President for giving me the opportunity to coach this team and the fans for their unconditional support,” the Coach said after the game.

“It was a special night and I’m very happy with how we played. We defended very well and deservedly beat an extraordinary team.

“We improved a lot defensively from our last game. We didn’t make any individual errors like we did against Valencia.

“Ben Yedder? He was decisive. We felt very close to our fans and I saw how some of the players were also fans in the dressing room.”
