Morientes granted UEFA's web magazine an interview to talk about the Champions League and Valencia's upcoming tie against Inter. This is my favorite exchange:
UEFA: In that season with Monaco you scored twice against Madrid. How did that feel?Who else in the game has had the chance to stick it to the people that sign their checks?
Morientes: The matches I played against Madrid were special because I was on loan from them at the time. I was a Madrid player and they were paying my wages so those games were as special for me as the ones ahead will be until the end of my career. Once I was on the pitch all I had in mind was to play as well as I could for my club, which at the time was Monaco. I was lucky enough to score twice, once at the Bernabeu and once in Monaco, and those goals helped us through. I was very happy, not because it was against Madrid, but because we made it through to the next round.
