Simeone hails ‘incredible’ Atleti

Diego Simeone has hailed his Atletico Madrid side as 'incredible' after they beat Real Madrid to win the Copa del Rey.

Cristiano Ronaldo's early header was cancelled out by Diego Costa, before Miranda scored in extra time to give the Rojiblancos the victory.

And the Argentine Coach has insisted that his team deserved to win at Santiago Bernabeu.

“It was a great game. We played on a special field where for a long time the opponent had not lost at home,” he told a Press conference.

It is an extraordinary victory, it's incredible

The team won the heart of every one. We lost the fear of the opponent, we had the luck that you need, but we created chances. Real Madrid have gone more than 40 games unbeaten here. We won the game we had to win.

I told the boys that they were better than them. Physically they were great.

There was no reason to make changes. They rely on their strength as a team. What brought us to these achievements is to see Costa running meters back, seeing Koke getting bigger, the sacrifice for the team from Falcao. Gabi … he is exciting, extraordinary.”
