'Everyone at Udinese should be proud'

Udinese defender Mehdi Benatia has claimed that everyone at the club should be 'proud' of their achievements over the past two seasons.

The Zebrette finished fourth and third in the table over the past couple of years, and the 25-year-old has called their recent success 'extraordinary', despite a tougher time this term.

“What we have done over the last two and a half seasons is extraordinary,” he told the club's official website.

“I think everyone, from the directors to the fans, should be proud of what we've done.

“I certainly am. And I would be even more proud if, at the end of my third season, we could fight for a place in the Europa League.

“We have to fight right until the end and see what happens.”
