Cyriel Dessers talks tough ahead of Conference League semifinals

Cyriel Dessers talks tough ahead of Conference League semifinals

This season, the Super Eagles striker has found the back of the net on eight occasions in the Europa Conference League and has vowed to continue his red hot form when his side takes on Marseille. 

Cyriel Dessers has proclaimed that he's ready to put up a strong showing when his team hosts the French giants in the first leg of their Europa Conference League semifinal.

Both sides have a very good pedigree on the continent and this encounter is set to be the toughest test yet for any of them in the competition. 

Feyenoord will need their Conference League leading scorer Dessers to be at his best if they are to get anything out of the match.

Dessers' first appearance in the semifinals of a European club championship would be against Marseille, and the Nigerian star is ready to give it his all.

“De Kuip(Feyenoord stadium) is special anyway, but the European evenings have some extras,” Dessers told the Feyenoord website.

“I expect it to be one of the best matches of my career. This is what you dream of if you want to become a footballer as a child.”

A positive result across both legs for Feyenoord would ensure their first European final in twenty years.
