Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone credited his excellent bond with his players as the reason behind their triumph in the 2018 UEFA Europa League final in Lyon on Wednesday night.

Whether his stay in Madrid extends beyond four years remains to be seen as Simeone, who was forced to watch from the stands as he served the second game of a four-match touchline ban, said the club would still improve if they were to lose their talisman.

The France global has been persistently linked with a move away from the Wanda Metropolitano, with Barcelona reported being among his biggest admirers.

Propelled by the fervent supporters who had waited 14 years to reach another European final, the French side created two early chances but striker Germain and defender Adil Rami both missed the target. "This was my dream, to win with my team and I've been able to achieve it". "He's given us a lot, he gave us a leap in quality as a team".

"Antoine - if he stays we'll continue to grow and develop", the Argentinian said.

Things got worse for them when playmaker Dimitri Payet left the field injured in floods of tears in the 32nd minute. "I am a better player thanks to him".

Striker Valère Germain then had a great chance to open the scoring for the Ligue 1 side with less than five minutes played, only to fire wide when through on goal. "We lost a great player at set-pieces, if there's one part of the game where we could have been unsafe, it would have been set- pieces". "I dedicate this to all the fans that came here and all the ones that are waiting for us in Madrid".

Payet appeared to aggravate a recent thigh injury and was replaced after 31 minutes.

"We let our chance go in the first half". On Wednesday, Griezmann's first goal of the night albeit came from a defensive error on Marseille's part, but it completely took the sails out of the French side. "Atletico you deserve the world".
