Luis: A difficult title

Atletico Madrid defender Filipe Luis has hailed his side’s La Liga title victory, describing it as extremely difficult and complicated.

The Rojiblancos secured a first championship since 1996 with a dramatic 1-1 draw at Camp Nou against Barcelona yesterday, triggering wild celebrations at full-time.

Diego Simeone’s team now have the chance to secure a sensational double when they take on arch rivals Real Madrid in the Champions League final next week.

“We have won an extremely complicated League,” Luis told Gol TV. “It is a very long season and a very tough season.

“There are a lot of matches and a lot of training sessions. It’s the first title and now we can battle with Real Madrid for the Champions League.”
