Burgos: Scared? I had cancer…

German Burgos insists Atletico Madrid’s potential Champions League elimination by Bayern Munich did not faze him as “after cancer, I’m not afraid of anything”.

Diego Simeone admitted in his post-match Press conference that Atleti were close to missing out on the final when Bayern were awarded a penalty in Tuesday’s last-four second leg, which they ultimately missed, but his assistant – who was treated for cancer in 2003 – took the opposing view.

“After having cancer, I’m not afraid of anything. For me, it’s just football,” Burgos said after the game.

“After experiencing such an extreme situation, I want to take this opportunity to send greetings to all the people who are in hospitals, suffering in them, and give them all our energy.”
