Koke: Opponent doesn’t matter

Atletico Madrid match-winner Koke has no preferences as to whom he would like to face in the Champions League semi-finals.

The midfielder scored the only goal in last night’s win over Barcelona and says the important thing is to reach the final regardless of who they play.

“Thinking about tomorrow’s draw I don’t know which of the other three teams I would prefer,” Koke is quoted as saying by Mundo Deportivo.

“The important thing is that we reach the final.

“We played a great tie against Barca. There were doubts over whether we’d be able to last the pace.

“We have shown up until now that we are can continue with the same intensity.

“People talk a lot about intensity and our physical shape but they don’t value the things we are actually doing with the ball!”
