‘Atleti’s football wonderful, not ugly’

Enrique Cerezo has hit back at Arturo Vidal’s “ugly” assessment of Atletico Madrid as “our football is wonderful and we play to win”.

Vidal claimed after Bayern Munich’s Champions League semi-final elimination on Tuesday that Atleti’s style of play was hardly pleasant on the eye, but Cerezo insists his club’s approach has left them in “an enviable situation” and with “half of Europe” on side.

“Our football ugly? It’s wonderful and we play to win,” the President told Radio Marca.

“We’re in an enviable situation. Now more than half of Europe is [supporting] Atletico Madrid.”
