Simeone proud among Europe´s elite

6 April 2012 18:40

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone expressed pride in his team after leading them to the Europa League semi-finals.

Simeone's side picked up a 2-1 away win against Hannover in the second leg of their quarter-final tie on Thursday, beating the German club 4-2 on aggregate.

Atletico now face a semi-final tie against Spanish rivals Valencia, and Simeone was keen to praise his team.

"Today is important because many fans will be happy with Atletico. We are among the best in Europe and we feel good," he told reporters after the game.

The Argentine was also asked about his explosive strike duo, Adrian and Radamel Falcao, who both grabbed goals to sink Hannover.

"There is little to say about Falcao and Adrian. There are few words to say about them. They are players who feel at home," he said.

Hannover managing director Joerg Schmadtke was full of praise for his side despite the defeat.

"At the end of the day we may be proud of what the team has achieved in this year's Europa League season. I think we left our mark," Schmadtke said.

"Plus we have experienced some very emotional games. We have held up Hannover's flag."
