Barcelona football club defender Dani Alves has stated that Atletico Madrid are more than worthy winners of this season’s UEFA Champions League.

Atletico Madrid defeated Barcelona and Bayern Munich in the quarter and semi-finals, hence setting up a repeat of the 2014 final which his side lost 4 – 1 after extra time. In 10 competitive matches since that clash in Lisbon, Atletico have lost just once to their fierce rivals – a 1-0 Champions League reverse last April that sent Real Madrid in the semi-finals.

Alves said: “I want Atletico to win in. But not just because I want Madrid to lose”.

He continued: “I like it when Madrid don’t win, that is obvious. But I want Atletico to win it because they are a team that has worked for it. They deserve a title of this level, and they come into it having competed with the best. 

“Madrid already have a lot of Champions Leagues. I would like Atletico to have a prize for all the work they have done in recent years,” Alves stressed.
