Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye says they can be proud of their run to the Europa League quarterfinals.

Cabaye spoke of his pride following Newcastle's gallant Europa League quarter-final exit to Portuguese giants Benfica.

The midfielder again led the team last night, he told "The experience for me was fantastic, being the captain of this team.

"I am proud of this football club, proud of everyone. The fans were amazing so I can't wait for Sunday's game and the derby.

"I just want to win the game to move up the table but also for us and for the fans."
