Staff, coaches and managers of Atletico Madrid were celebrating Friday’s Copa del Rey title with their fans through the streets of the capital. The bus, which departed the Vicente Calderon stadium past around 5:30 pm with the slogan “Atleti makes you stronger”, made its first stop at the headquarters of the Community of Madrid before going through the city and down to Neptune, where it is expected to finish.
Gabi was the first to take the floor at the Puerta del Sol. “It was the right opportunity to beat Madrid,” said the Atletico captain, who like his teammates wore a shirt with the inscription “Being champion is not a goal, it is an attitude “.
Atletico gave Ignacio Gonzalez, president of the Community, a red and white shirt that the president did not hesitate to wear, despite being a confessed Real Madrid supporter. “You have proven once again that you are a championship team, capable of overcoming all obstacles and winning always with that spirit passed on by your coach. By comparison I don’t even want to talk, but in the end, one was there, and the other was waiting on him,” Ignacio Gonzalez said in reference to Jose Mourinho.
