After playing arguably one of the best games of his career, that included the final goal of the night, Diego’s Atletico Madrid emerged victorious in the Europa League final.

The Brazilian midfielder gushed over his club’s 3-0 win over their La Liga counterparts on Wednesday evening, and celebrated his club’s overwhelming performance.

“We played against a tough rival like Athletic, but we played an almost perfect match,” said Diego to UEFA’s official website.

“It was a difficult match; we never said it was going to be easy. I have to thank God for this [victory].”

Atletico’s victory is their second Europa League title in three seasons, their last win coming against Fulham in 2010.
