Sevilla boss Vincenzo Montella reveals he joked with Roma Coach Eusebio Di Francesco that they would meet in the Champions League Final.
Both are at least some of the way through, as they reached the quarter-finals this evening.
Sevilla earned a 2-1 victory away to Manchester United, eliminating Jose Mourinho’s big spenders, while the Giallorossi got the better of Shakhtar Donetsk on away goals.
“When I arrived here at Sevilla, I said joking to my friend Eusebio that I’d like to meet him in the Champions League Final, because we’d each be happy for the other,” Montella told Mediaset Premium.
“My team put in an exceptional performance over both legs and I am happy for this special evening. It’s a prestigious result and I am very happy.
“I’m also particularly pleased that Wissam Ben Yedder was the decisive player tonight, as he suffered in recent weeks with some of my choices.”
