Correa netted twice in the 2-1 win at Celta Vigo last weekend and the delighted Mexican winger was full of confidence at full time.
“I am very happy because we got the victory and we were able to dedicate it to the fans, to our people, they’re finally back”, as per reports from Diario AS.
“Since the pandemic began, they were with us, but having them here is an immense joy and I want to dedicate this victory to them.”
Correa is the only player to score for Atletico so far in competitive action this season but there was some welcome fitness news for Simeone as Luis Suarez made another late came off the bench.
