Atletico Madrid has come up short in two finals in the last three seasons, but the Spaniard sees no reason why Diego Simeone side can't go one step further this season to win the Champions League title.
Diego Simeone side Atletico Madrid is currently 9 points behind the table topper Real Madrid, but they have made a sensational start to this season's Champions League, having won all five group games including a 1-0 victory over the Bundesliga giant Bayern Munich.
And so, according to the former Spain international and Atletico Madrid’s midfielder Atletico Madrid have best chance of obtaining silverware this term and also he finds no reason why his old club can't get their hands on the trophy.
As Luis Garcia told Goal, while he was in Delhi to watch a screening of Saturday's El Clasico organised by La Liga,
“I don’t see why they cannot go on to win a Champions League,”
“They have made a place as one of the three top teams in La Liga as well. No one was expecting them to go all the way to the final last season, leaving all the big teams like Barcelona, Bayern behind.”
“They did that again in 2014. So I feel confident that they will do it again. The 2014 loss must have been the hardest one. But last year as well they played very well but couldn’t get it. I feel the Champions League owes one cup to Atletico!”
