Filipe Luis declares “as long as the sun shines in the sky, Atletico Madrid will try to win the Champions League” ahead of tomorrow’s Roma game.
Diego Simeone’s side have been beaten twice in the final by city rivals Real Madrid, losing in extra-time in the 2014 final and then on penalties at San Siro in 2016.
“I would like to end my career with this club, continuing to give everything for them, because I realise what it means,” Luis told Panenka.
“I am a huge admirer of Simeone – by now he knows me better than my own father does.
“As long as the sun shines in the sky and as long as there is life, Atletico Madrid will try to win the Champions League.
“Few things were more painful for me than the night in Lisbon [in 2014]. I had weeks of sleepless nights.”
