Man City striker Ambrose proud 'making history' with NAC

Manchester City striker Thierry Ambrose is delighted with his first months at NAC Breda.

Ambrose is on a season-long deal with NAC and was part of the team that defeated Feyenoord at the De Kuip for the first time in their history.

"I did not even know it would be historic," said Ambrose to GFFN. "We stood at 0-1, and the trainer ( Stijn Frival) told us that if we were to win it would be a historic achievement. That was a good move for him because it changed our mindset. He motivated us," recalled Ambrose.

"We are still young, so this result has put a lot of pressure on us. The fans expect a lot of us," continues the youngster. "They think we can go a long way, but I think it's just extra stress, but playing with so many other young players is amazing. This is just the start of the season."

Ambrose continued: "The last two years were very heavy for me with a lot of injuries. There were moments in the hospital I thought I would give up. I wanted to stop, but there was always that football feeling that came back when I played on PlayStation. I just wanted to fight back."
