Chelsea defender Marc Cucurella names Man Utd humiliation as one of the greatest moments of his career
Chelsea defender Marc Cucurella has revealed that a 4-0 win over Manchester United last season - when he played for Brighton - is one of his favourite moments in football.
The Spanish defender moved to English football at the beginning of last season, joining Graham Potter's Seagulls.
He joined from La Liga side Getafe, having come through the youth system at Barcelona.
After a series of impressive and consistent performances, Cucurella earned a summer move to Chelsea for an initial fee of £55 million.
The 24-year-old has already played under three managers at Stamford Bridge, with Frank Lampard the current incumbent of the role following the sackings of Thomas Tuchel and Potter in this campaign.
Now, the left-back, who can also play on the left of a back three or at wing-back, has detailed his most memorable footballing moments.
Cucurella re-visits Man Utd humiliation
Speaking in an interview with Goal, the Spaniard named the Seagulls' 4-0 win over United in May 2022 - in which he scored - as a personal favourite football match.
He explained: "The last season when we played against United and we won 4-0 and I scored one goal. I think this is one of the best games for me."
He also named a game for La Liga side Eibar, in which they beat Real Madrid 3-0 in November 2018. Cucurella's side inflicted the first defeat on then Real boss Santiago Solari after he replaced current Wolves boss Julen Lopetegui.
"When I play with Eibar, we won 3-0 [against Real Madrid]," he began.
"This was amazing because Eibar is a small team in Spain and the atmosphere was fantastic. I think we played a really good game.
"I think it's the first time we ever won against Real Madrid and I think it's maybe one of the best games I've played - this is a good memory for me."
Cucurella will hope to be involved in another famous win over Real, this time with Chelsea in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final.
The Spaniard will likely start at left-back or left wing-back at Stamford Bridge after Ben Chilwell was sent off during the 2-0 first leg defeat at the Bernabeu on Wednesday.
