Feyenoord defender Eric Botteghin excited by Ibrahimovic challenge

Feyenoord defender Eric Botteghin is excited facing Europa League opponents Manchester United tonight.

Botteghin admits he hopes to test himself against United star Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

"I really hope to face Zlatan Ibrahimovic, arguably the best striker in the world. I just want to know what it is like to play against such a great player," said the Brazilian to AD.

"I prefer the big strikers, where I can enter into duels."

He added: "They will be a very different team compared to what we face in the Eredivisie. This is the type of game you see how good a player you are."
