Saul Niguez insisted Atletico Madrid did not deserve to lose two Champions League finals. “Once is hard enough, but to suffer twice…”
Atleti lost a second European final against Real in three seasons as they were defeated 5-3 on penalties, and Saul confessed to feeling “pained” after the game, although he made it clear his side would fight for continental supremacy “until we get it”.
“It’s very painful. This team don’t deserve this to happen twice. Once is hard enough, but to suffer twice…,” he told BeIN Sports.
“It was a match with a lot of intensity, and we were all dead [by the end of it].
“Next season, we’ll try to go for the Champions League, La Liga and everything else, but always while going game by game.
“We;re going to fight for [the Champions League] until we get it.”
