Atlético Mineiro have had “a wonderful year” insists Ronaldinho
Despite a disappointing end to 2013, Ronaldinho believes Atlético Mineiro have had a “wonderful year.”
Cuca’s side were defeated 3-1 by Raja Casablanca in the semi-finals of the FIFA Club World Cup.
But having won the Copa Libertadores for the first time in their history, Ronaldinho insists it has been unforgettable 12 months for Atlético.
“It was a wonderful year. We made history in a club that goes back 100 years,” he told FIFA.com. “We are happy to be part of that, to represent this generation of the club in this historic year.
“Unfortunately we didn’t close out the year with a perfect ending. But it is something that serves as experience so that next time we are even more focused and don’t make the same mistakes.”
Atlético’s final game of 2013 is a third place match against Guangzhou Evergrande.
