Diego Simeone was delighted with what he saw from Atletico Madrid as Juventus were beaten in the Champions League.
Arda Turan scored the game’s only goal to give Los Colchoneros their first win in the competition of the season and, speaking after the match, Cholo was effusive in his praise for the team.
“We improved in the second half, played more in the opponents’ half and started to have a presence in the penalty area,” he said, SportYou reports.
“I’m proud. What this group manages to convey and the effort they put in is fabulous, and against a great opponent.
“Arda is a special player. In the position he plays, he’s extraordinary. Maybe we lost a little in open play but we have a lot of talent and we looked like scoring when we attacked down the wings.”
