Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo believes the club are ready to challenge Barcelona for the Spanish title this campaign.
Atleti have reduced the gap from 11 points to seven over the past two matchdays due to the Blaugrana dropping points against both Espanyol and Getafe.
“We will be fighting for the title until the last,” Cerezo is cited as saying by Diario AS.
“There is still a game between us and Barcelona which could change the gap and could make things even more interesting.”
After Los Rojiblancos triumphed 1-0 at Malaga on Saturday, Coach Diego Simeone believed his side still needed to improve and were not looking at other teams.
