Filipe Luis paid tribute to the Atletico Madrid fans after the 3-1 win over Chelsea that sent Atleti to the Champions League final.

“The fans are amazing. There are no words. I’ve been here four years and it’s inexplicable. They deserve this joy,” AS reports the left-back as saying.

“We had to fight uphill but we never gave up. The teamwork was noticeable on the field. There’s still some important games to go.

“The team has suffered all season. We never give up and we stay patient. The equaliser gave us a lot of encouragement and we learned to manage the game.”

Atletico now play Real Madrid and Filipe said that while the opposition couldn’t be any harder, Atleti will still give their all.

“A final doesn’t matter who you play. Just look at the trophy and you want it. It is the toughest opponent we could have played. They’re the best team in the world,” he added.
