Nigerian winger Moses Simon has hailed his Levante teammates after a surprise 2-1 away win over Real Madrid in La Liga this past weekend.
Simon was an unused substitute as Levante downed ‘Los Blancos’ 2-1 at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday afternoon, with goals from Jose Luis Morales and Roger Marti.
“It is quite huge beating Real Madrid in front of their fans, that show lots of commitment from my team through out the game,” Simon told Nigeria’s Football Live.
“Though I sat on the bench, with high expectations of playing in the match, but my coach thought it better for me to remain as an unused substitute for this particular game.
“For me, the most important thing as a player, was the three points we picked away from home at the expense of a big team like Real Madrid.
“It is a commendable one [result] I must say, we fought hard without relenting and we got the desired results as a team.”
The Super Eagles attacker added, “I am gradually settling down in my new club and in Spain as well.
“Playing in one of the elite leagues in the world is a dream come true for me. As a child I have always dreamt of playing in the one of the recognised leagues in the world which presently I am, playing in the Spanish La Liga.
“I am grateful to God for an opportunity to grow in my career and I will fervently keep working hard to ensure I remain relevant in the game.”
