Ben Yedder reacts to his brace against Manchester United - FCNaija

Sevilla coach Vincenzo Montella has reacted to his side’s Champions League triumph over Manchester United by praising his team for playing 'the game of their lives' on Tuesday night.

The Spanish side stunned United 2-1 at Old Trafford after a goalless draw in the first leg two weeks ago, with striker Wissam Ben Yedder coming off the bench to score a brace to send the Red Devils packing and Montella couldn’t hide his admiration for what his players had done.

“I'm very, very happy, it's amazing we've won in this very special stadium and the first time in 60 years we're in the quarter-finals of the Champions League,” Montella said.

“I have some very happy players who have got Sevilla in their soul and in their heart. All the players were fantastic, they played the game of their lives.

“Even though we didn't create chances in the first-half we put in a good performance. I felt we were in control possession-wise and we have them very little opportunity to get close to our goal.

“In the second half I'm pleased Ben Yedder turned things around and it was he who made the difference. He was decisive and finished well on two occasions.”
