thumbnail Hello,

The veteran hitman has expressed his delight with his double on Saturday, and feels that his strikes against Blas Giunta's men were some of his most important in his career

David Trezeguet has insisted that his two goals for River Plate against Almirante Brown, which helped the Millonarios back to the top flight, mean more to him than his winner for France in the final of Euro 2000.

The experienced attacker helped Les Bleus to the European title some 12 years ago by netting a decisive strike in extra-time, but he feels that firing River back to the top flight gave him even more pleasure.

"They were both very important moments in my career. It was a very emotional moment when I scored at the Euros because I didn't play much with the national side then. This was even more special, though," Trezeguet stated to Ole.

"Not only does it mean that River return to the top flight, but I'm also swollen with pride. This has a double meaning for me. It's even bigger than the goal at Euro 2000.

"Today [Saturday] we completed the objective of returning River to where they deserves to be, the first division. I am very happy to have been able to contribute to reaching the goal."

River dropped to the Nacional B in the summer of 2011, but will be back in Argentina's top flight next term after a one-year absence.
