Cerezo: “Ge Atletico Madrid Champions League”

The head president joked that his team deserved to be crowned European champion.

Atletico Madrid should be rewarded for their victory over the reigning European champion Liverpool by being awarded the trophy if it is not possible to finish the tournament this season. This is the view of Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo who suggested that the winners in the 2019-2020 edition be the team that eliminated the defending champions, while Rojiblancos came to the red in the knockout stages just before the end of the season because of the Coronavirus pandemic.

His comments, probably ironic and in a ton of fun, come when UEFA develops a plan to end the competition, after Atletico Madrid eliminated the Reds to reach the quarterfinals. One possible solution to complete the competition is that a single host city organizes matches for the quarterfinals and the rest of the competition, with unique matches that are likely to replace traditional round trips.

“Nothing is known yet”

But Enrique Cerezo has his own ideas on how things could be addressed if the Champions League could not be completed “In the hypothetical hypothesis where the Champions League was not played because of coronavirus, the champion should be the one who beat the champion“Cerezo told Mundo Deportivo.”There are still some knockout matches, the quarterfinals, the semi-finals and the finals. “
