Heitinga: Atletico Madrid can win Champions League

Johnny Heitinga says he's moving to Atletico Madrid to win the Champions League.

"That's why I left Ajax," said the Holland defender. "Atletico finished fourth in the strongest competition in the world, so we are already above many other European teams. We can aspire to everything!"

Heitinga admits he's yet to speak with Atletico coach Javier Aguirre about his plans for next season.

He added: "I haven't spoken with him, but I have heard great things. I could only talk a few times with Mr Jesus (Garcia Pitarch). I hope very soon to get to know everybody there."
