“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.
