Otamendi, with a complete display, was named the "Man of the Match" in Benfica's win over Tondela on matchday 13 of the Liga NOS. "'I'm happy, but more than an individual award, it's an award for the team. We needed a reaction to believe that we can fight until the end of the Championship. We must have a winning mentality, it was a good start, we scored two goals and we kept a clean sheet. We know we have tow improve and give joys to our supporters. The gaffer told us to be patient in the ball possession to create spaces. We played a great match, keeping the ball, not losing it so often", claimed the Argentinian international in the flash interview with BTV.
