Atletico Madrid playmaker Arda Turan has insisted that the capital club are not getting ahead of themselves in the Champions League.

Diego Simeone’s men are one of only two teams to have remained unbeaten in Europe’s premier club competition.

But the Turkish midfielder has claimed that the Rojiblancos still have their feet on the ground.

"We always believe we can get a positive result when we're playing in the Champions League. However, I don't want to be overly ambitious at this stage," Arda told UEFA.com.

"This is the world's biggest competition and it's very tough. We play every game as if it were a final and see where that approach takes us.

“That doesn't mean we don't dream of winning it or that we're not ambitious. We just want to win."

The attacker has heavily praised the Argentine Coach with the Vicente Calderon side going strong in Europe and at home.

"He is working towards becoming the best in the world," said Arda. "To be able to achieve that, he just needs a little more experience.

“I believe he will become the best Coach in the world. The way in which he reads the game and develops relationships with his players is magnificent."
