Simeone hails ‘amazing’ Atleti

Diego Simeone has thanked his players after Atletico Madrid were crowned Liga champions on Saturday.

A second half header from Diego Godin ensured that the Rojiblancos drew 1-1 with Barcelona to win their first title since 1996.

“It’s amazing. You can’t explain it. Thanks to the players,” he told reporters after the game.

“We’ve never stopped working and that’s why we’re here.

“Today is one of the best days in the history of Atleti.

"I'm sure [former Coach] Luis Aragones was defending for us in the second half."
