Gabi: Atleti know how to fight

Gabi has spoken of Atletico Madrid’s fighting abilities ahead of Wednesday’s Europa League final clash with Marseille.

The Atleti captain insists that his team know what to do on the pitch in order to get what they deserve.

Los Colchoneros will be contesting the third Europa League final in the club’s history and Gabi praised the mentality of the dressing room.

“Our characteristics are stability and consistency and we are among those side’s who know how best to suffer throughout a game, “Gabi told a pre-match Press conference.

“We’ve already shown in finals and important games that this is our strength. We’ve spent around seven years working in a similar fashion, which has brought great results and has been created by our Coach.

“Previously unknown players have now become famous and we have all grown alongside the club. Our way of working has become a reference point for many in Europe and we hope to continue at this level for a long time.”

Gabi was also invited to comment on the team’s star Antoine Griezmann, who has been a target for Barcelona in recent months and could depart the Wanda Metropolitano this summer.

“We’ve been talking about him all year, but it’s important for him to win a title because with his quality that’s all he cares about or needs.

“I certainly hope it’s not his last final with us. We need him and he knows that everyone wants him here,” he maintained.
