Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo is delighted with his players after this week's Europa League triumph.

Two Diego Forlan goals, one four minutes from the end of extra time, secured the cup for Atletico against Fulham in Hamburg.

Cerezo said: "It is a very important time for Atletico Madrid because we are all happy.

"We think this will last a week because, God willing, in a few days we will be here to celebrate the Copa del Rey.

"The road has been difficult because we all know the difficulties we have had to overcome.

"There have been many tough games to play, but thanks to these players we have moved forward.

"Fortunately all the work was completed in Hamburg to bring us this title, which is for all in the name Madrid - Atletico Madrid. "
