Cerezo: Atleti one of the world’s best

Atletico Madrid President Enrique Cerezo believes that the capital club are now ‘one of the best in the world’.

The Rojiblancos claimed their first title since 1996 on Saturday after they drew 1-1 with Barcelona at Camp Nou.

Diego Simeone’s side finished the campaign top of the table with 90 points, and are now preparing to face Real Madrid in the Champions League final on Saturday.

“We’ve taken an important step in our history,” he told AS. “I think, right now, you can consider us one of the best teams in the world.

“We suffered a lot, that’s true. But this isn’t any old League. We’ve had to fight against giants like Madrid and Barcelona.

“Now we want to go out and win [the Champions League]. It’s a title we’ve never won. It’s going to be great to come up against Real Madrid.”
