“We suffered a lot, but it feels so good. We were born to suffer, it hardens us, as we are going to suffer all our lives”, as per reports from Mundo Deportivo.

De Paul is expected to be granted an extended break by Atletico in the coming days, with La Liga returning at the end of December, but the 28-year-old will not feature until 2023.
