Feyenoord defender Eric Botteghin: I gave everything against Ibrahimovic

Feyenoord defender Eric Botteghin was proud of his performance against Manchester United last week.

Botteghin helped Feyenoord keep a clean sheet for the Europa League shock.

"I gave everything. You have to compete and give everything, but also enjoy it of course," he said, before turning to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

"He is one of the best strikers in the world: big, strong. But on the field I looked not at him, I just wanted to win my duels.

"We were compact in defence and the cooperation in the whole team was good."
