West Brom hero Amalfitano: Beating Man Utd career highlight

West Bromwich Albion midfielder Morgan Amalfitano says victory at Manchester United was a career highlight.

West Bromwich Albion midfielder Morgan Amalfitano says victory at Manchester United was a career highlight.

The one-cap French international is used to big games thanks to his time at Marseille, whom he helped reach the Champions League quarter-finals in 2011-12 - where they were beaten by Bayern Munich - as well as winning the Coupe de la Ligue in the same season, beating Lyon in a final that went to extra-time.

Nevertheless, he ranks the win at Old Trafford as one of the highlights of his career.

"Saturday’s game ranks up there in the top games in my career.

"It was a great win for me, a great place to get the win - and I scored.

"We played well as a team, the football was fantastic and I’m enjoying it. But if we hadn’t shown the unity we did on Saturday we wouldn’t have played as well."
