Atletico Madrid captain Koke: We deserved what we got from Man Utd tie

Atletico Madrid captain Koke says his team got what they deserved against Manchester United on Tuesday.

The Spanish giants are into the Champions League quarter-finals after claiming a 1-0 win at Old Trafford.

Renan Lodi's first half header was enough for Atleti to seal a 2-1 win on aggregate.

"We deserved the win in the first leg, but fought so hard here to get what we deserved from this tie," Koke told reporters.

"We want to go far in the competition and it's incredible to still be in it. It's important for us to still be in the Champions League in what's an up-and-down season.

"For me, Jan Oblak is the best goalkeeper in the world. He's shown it once again tonight."
