Atletico Madrid Europa League hero Diego Forlan hopes his performance in victory over Fulham ends doubts about him in England.

After scoring an extra-time winner against Liverpool in the semi-final as well, Forlan has certainly had a lot of fun at England's expense in the competition.

It is a quite staggering change from his time at Manchester United, when he was written off.

"I don't know whether people in England are looking at me in a different way, but I am playing well and I am enjoying it," said Forlan, who will be part of the Uruguay squad at this summer's World Cup.

"Manchester United were a really good team, with great players, but it was difficult for me to play.

"I spoke to Sir Alex and told him that I wanted to leave to try and get regular football. That is why I am so happy at Atletico."

Amazingly, for all the money spent by Barcelona and Real Madrid, Atletico are the only Spanish team to win a European trophy this season, a feat Forlan is determined to celebrate.

"We are bringing a title back to Spain," he added. "Hopefully tomorrow we can dress Madrid in red."
