As for the rest, the Atlético Madrid president looked happy and at ease. The only thing weighing on his chest is not having been able to get ten thousand more tickets, the number of additional Atleti fans he reckons would have made the trip to Milan but can't. The same is true for madridistas. But, all that aside, he is brimming with excitement with the imminence of a match that will put this city centre stage. Atlético have been doing things very well for a number of years now, so much so that they've broken the Madrid and Barça duopoly, and reached another European Cup final just two years after their last. Cerezo embodies the Atleti spirit superbly.
