Simeone proud of Atletico spirit

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone was proud of his players after they battled to a 1-1 draw in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

I'm very happy with this team, this was the most decisive game of the two years I've been at the club and we are still going, showing enormous heart, and the way we fought makes me so proud, and I'm sure the fans are proud too.

I'm delighted we were able to compete with Barcelona, you don't earn the right to do that in a day, you earn it with hard work and today we showed we can compete with them.
