Atletico Madrid coach Simeone: Man Utd fans saw our best performance of season

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone says they produced their best performance of the season for victory at Manchester United.

Atletico reach the Champions League quarterfinals 2-1 on aggregate thanks to Renan Lodi's winner at Old Trafford.

Simeone said, "I'm happy. So many people work hard so we can have these moments. It was a brilliant effort from the lads, one of our best games this season.

"We started with a 5-3-2 then changed to a 5-4-1 with Griezmann on the right of midfield and Lodi growing more and more on the left. The defence were brilliant and Oblak helped us remain calm throughout. It was a real team effort.

"Lodi's doing really well. He had to wait a long time [to get in the side], but football is marvellous because when you train hard and are ready to go, there's always a chance for you."
