Atletico Madrid captain Gabi wants his side’s La Liga title win to be the start of a sustained period of success for the club.
The Vicente Calderon outfit secured the draw they needed at Camp Nou against Barcelona yesterday to be crowned champions of Spain at the expense of their opponents.
This evening, the entire Rojiblancos squad and coaching staff celebrated their triumph with an open top bus parade through Madrid which finished at Neptuno square.
“Thank you very much to everyone,” Gabi announced in a speech made to Atleti fans. “For me it is an honour to be here and to share a dressing room with these people and achieve what we have achieved.
“It is a reward for hard work and sacrifice, and for the love we have for our colours that you can’t buy.
“We are only just beginning.”
