Granada coach Diego Martinez: Victory over Napoli historic

Granada coach Diego Martinez hailed his players after pulling off a "historic" victory over Napoli.

Granada are into the Europa League round of 16 after a 3-2 aggregate victory over the Partenopei.

“This is something historic," Martinez said.

“What the team has done is a feat. All the adversities we've had adds more value to what the team has done.

“After the draw, all of Europe considered us to be already eliminated. But the team played a great first leg, we played a great first half, and the team has once again shown the strength of this Granada.

“We left our souls [out there on the pitch], qualification was obtained thanks to everyone, to the spirit and soul of this team that is unique."
