Godín: We fought all season and did an amazing job
Atlético Madrid defender Diego Godín underlined all the hard work his team have done throughout their title winning campaign, after his goal was enough to draw the game at Barcelona, giving them the point they needed to cross the finish line.
Winning La Liga is the enduring work of the whole season and not just thanks to his goal, which earned Atlético Madrid a the final point they needed at the Camp Nou, explained a delighted Diego Godín to GOL TV after the game.
“We fought all season and did an amazing job. Holding on in there for 38 games against Real Madrid and Barcelona was always going to be difficult.”
In what was a highly charged and tense game, Atlético had fallen behind to a goal from Alexis in the first half, but Godin revealed that in their half-time team-talk, El Cholo remained convinced they would score.
“Simeone told us during the interval that he was certain we were going to get a goal.”
As for whether Atlético Madrid are deserving champions, Godin is in no doubts…
“Football has seen justice done.”
