Europa League Football

Real Madrid fans laughed at Juanfran’s attempt to mock them after Atletico’s EL win

Atletico Madrid’s season finished on an incredibly high note in Lyon on Wednesday night.

After assuring a second-place La Liga finish, ahead of city rivals Real Madrid, Diego Simeone’s side outclassed Marseille in their own country, winning 3-0 to claim the Europa League crown for a third time.

Simeone has been the mastermind behind that trio of victories and this was his side’s most dominant display yet.

Antoine Griezmann returned to the city where he was born to claim a brilliant brace, with Gabi scoring late on to seal the victory.

The game had a lot of significance for Fernando Torres as well, allowing El Nino to lift his first trophy with the club in his final season.

Griezmann also picked up the first major honour of his career, while Gabi was “forced to eat his own words” after previously stating that the Europa League was a “piece of s**t”.

And it seems Juanfran caused a bit of a ruckus after the victory, with the experienced Spanish right-back taking the microphone and having a good ol’ swipe at Real Madrid.
