Cerezo: You have to be happy

Atletico Madrid President Enrique Cerezo has praised Diego Simeone and his players after they defeated Real Madrid.

An 11th minute Diego Costa goal was enough to give the Rojiblancos all three points at Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday.

"I think we played a good game and people have come out happy. I think the result was close but we won. We are hoping for a good result next Tuesday against Porto," Cerezo told Cadena Cope. 

"How was [Real Madrid counterpart] Florentino Perez? Florentino was quiet. When you lose it is sad so I imagine he will have been the same. 

"But I was in the locker room. I've seen a lot of joy and good humour. It's three more points – you have to be happy.

“We are now five points ahead of Madrid – not bad."
