Walter Montoya made his first start for Sevilla in the 1-0 win over Athletic Club on Thursday night, since signing for the club in January.
“I’m very, very happy – more than ever – with the three points,” said the midfielder. “It took a lot of doing, but we were very good defensively. They had their chances on goal we were able to keep them out.
The 23-year-old was happy with the result at the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán, adding: “I think that this is a very competitive league and games like these demonstrate that it’s not easy to win.”
