The halfback of the Madrid club Saul Niguez shared his opinion on the Champions League final against Real (1:1, 3:5 on foams.).
“I am proud of team and fans. I am proud that I am part of Atletico. We have put all our drive and value to win the match. Everything is possible in football. Real have won thanks to good luck in penalty series.
The rival was better the first 15 minutes, but then we closed the ranks, and in the second half Atletico looked more preferably. We were going to win the match, and we had a penalty kick missed by Griezmann. Game was very intensive. We were on the last legs in the end of the macth.
It is painful for us. The team didn’t deserve repetition of history. It is very tough when it happens even once, and here the second time… But I am sure that we will come back and continue to work. We can become stronger.
Atletico doesn’t lose confidence, always continues to work and fight until receives the desirable”, – Saul noted.
