'Best day of my life' - Sevilla's Maresca

Sevilla's Enzo Maresca struggled to comprehend the magnitude of his side's achievement following their 4-0 thrashing of Middlesbrough in the UEFA Cup final last night.

The former Juventus and West Brom midfielder was named man-of-the-match after netting twice and playing a key role as the Andalucians ran riot in Eindhoven.

Maresca said: 'It is certainly difficult to explain what happened as it is virtually impossible. I managed to score twice and it was the best day of my life. I am really happy.'

Maresca netted a quickfire second-half double, after Luis Fabiano had handed Sevilla a 27th-minute lead, to take the match away from a woefully under-par Boro side.

Fredi Kanoute completed the rout late on as the Teessiders capitulated in coach Steve McClaren's final game before leaving the club to take over as the new England boss.

Sevilla's boisterous supporters cared little about McClaren's woes, however, and partied long after the final whistle at the Philips Stadion.

Maresca added: 'The city of Sevilla will be in great shape, we won and we are very grateful that the fans came along with us.

'We are important for our fans as they are important for us.'

While Maresca received most of the plaudits, Sevilla coach Juande Ramos picked out striker Luis Fabiano - who has struggled to win over the supporters at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium - for special praise.

'It has been a long season for him,' Ramos said of the Brazilian, who signed from Porto last summer. 'He has not done as well as he would have expected but he grabbed the important first goal which opened the floodgates.

'He played a great match, as did the rest of the team.'

Despite leading the Andalucian club to UEFA Cup glory and a position in the Primera Liga from which Champions League football next season is still a possibility, Ramos is another to have had an uneasy relationship with the Sevilla fans after replacing Joaquin Caparros at the helm last summer.

He refused to gloat over his detractors however.

'It is not a personal thing, the people and the fans of Sevilla can judge what they see,' Ramos said. 'Not everyone likes what I do and I have had some criticism.

'But I have my job to do and finally we can harvest the fruits of our labour.

'I am very happy as this is a success for everyone at Sevilla, the staff, the families and the fans.'
