‘The derbies have been changed’

Atletico Madrid President Enrique Cerezo has claimed that they 'had to win' against Real Madrid on Friday evening.

The Rojiblancos won the Copa del Rey yesterday, beating Jose Mourinho's 2-1 after extra time at Santiago Bernabeu.

And the club's owner has insisted that the times are changing in the capital.

“It was a great day for Atletico,” he told reporters. “But I want to congratulate Real Madrid – they were a great rival.

“We had to win on a day like this, at their stadium. Today has changed the derbies for the future.

“Statistics always go out of the window on important days. It was a great night.”
