David Villa feels Atletico Madrid’s results so far this season speak for themselves and are the result of the team’s hard work.
Diego Simeone’s men sit second in La Liga, three points behind leaders Barcelona and an equal number ahead of Real Madrid in third, and are already through to the knockout stages of the Champions League.
“We began very well, at a high tempo, in both the League and the Champions League. We are happy with how we have started but know we must continue working hard for it to stay that way,” said the Spain international on receiving Atleti’s Player of the Month award for October.
“Results have spoken for themselves. Thanks to the hard work of my teammates I’ve also managed to score a few goals recently that have helped us to win.
“I’m very happy with the work put in and am ready to carry on working month-by-month,” he declared.
