Atletico Madrid captain Gabi says his side are currently living through the best period of their lives.

The Rojiblancos lead La Liga at this late stage of the season and tomorrow face Barcelona in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

“We are going through the best moment of our lives,” Gabi told the media today. “Not one single player in the squad is tired.

“With the work we have done we have given people happiness and that is the most important thing.

“I think that from now on you will see the best of Atletico Madrid.

“Tomorrow the crowd are going to be important for us. It’s going to be an important match in our club’s history and I hope they will support and get behind us like they always do.

“We have earned the right to be enjoying ourselves at the moment. We need to put all the passion we have into our performances and enjoy everywhere that takes us.

“The match will be decided by small details. We must concentrate for 90 minutes because Xavi, Iniesta or Busquets can create a goal at any moment.

“We have no special plans for Messi, Neymar or anyone else. We just concentrate on our work as a team.”
