Fede Valverde was named man of the match in the Real Madrid-Celtic game by the UEFA observers' panel. The Uruguayan netted our team's fifth goal with a well-struck effort and set up Vini Jr's goal: "I'm really pleased with everyone's effort. Congratulations to the team because it belongs to them as well. It was a great game, we took our chances and got the goals we needed. We've been working hard, things don't go our way sometimes and it feels like everything is a negative, but we did well today".
"I get tired, but my objective is to continue scoring goals and supporting the team. That's the way I operate: run and give everything. There were a lot of people close to me who were quite right that I should take advantage of my shot and I'm doing that now and quite enjoying it. I like to strike it on the laces, it's my best shot, but I also sometimes like to hit it with the inside of my foot when I feel confident and today I was lucky enough to catch the ball right. They always joke with me that one day I'll break the ball".
