Sevilla striker Munir proud of Europa League hat-trick performance

Sevilla striker Munir El Haddadi was proud of his hat-trick performance in their 5-2 Europa League victory over Dudelange.

Munir knows he has to take advantage of each opportunity he is given to play.

He said, "It was a spectacular match from the whole team and we'll go into the next game in high spirits.

"We know what we came here to do, to achieve the victory, and it happened.

"We were very comfortable, there is a lot of competition in attacking positions and whoever plays, plays very well.

"You always want to play and I try to make the most of each minute the boss gives me."

Sevilla now head into Sunday's derby with Real Betis in good form and Munir knows the importance of the game for the supporters.

"I was lucky enough to play in the derby last season and I know what it's like and we have to win for the Sevilla fans," he said.

"You can't describe it, [it's] a pure feeling and we have to win so that [the fans] feel proud of us."
