Juanfran Confident Atletico Can Win Champions League Trophy
Juanfran remains confident Atletico Madrid can win the Champions League this season. Previously, Atletico suffered a painful defeat in two of the last four Champions League final.
Atletico was conquered rivals one city of Real Madrid on both occasions the final. This season, Atletico has made a bad start. Having lost at home by English Premier League champions Chelsea, they are now third in Group C.
Although Atletico have a lot of work to do if they want to get into the next round, Juanfran believes Atletico will win the Champions League someday.
“Yes, I’m sure,” said Juanfran to Marca. “I’m not saying this to cheat or make false hopes in the minds of people, but I’m sure we’ll someday lift the cup.
“We look forward to appearing in the group stage, qualifying for the knockout stages and from there we will gain confidence with every lap closer to the final,” said the right-back of Atletico.
If they reach the last 16, the Atletico squad can lose Vitolo and Diego Costa. Both can officially play when the club transfer ban ends at the turn of the year.
But Juanfran, whose contract expires at the end of the season, says Atletico can not be bothered by their arrival. “The goal today is not just thinking about Diego and Vitolo,” said Juanfran.
