Atlético Madrid defender Miranda delighted with how they won La LigaSaturday was delightful for Miranda and his team mates
Atlético Madrid defender Miranda hailed his sides La Liga triumph as the best way to win a league championship after the club’s draw at the Nou Camp on Saturday secured a sensational title victory.
A win for Barcelona would have handed them the title but Los Rojiblancos showed their typical fighting spirit to draw 1-1 and the Brazilian defender was jubilant afterwards.
Miranda was quoted by Inside Spanish Football, he said: “Now it’s time to celebrate. We and our fans had a brilliant campaign. We deserve to enjoy it.
“This is how we would’ve liked to win La Liga. It’s difficult to win a league that has Real Madrid and Barcelona, but we think we deserved it from the beginning.”
Despite being in imperious form all season, the 29-year-old won’t be playing in the World Cup this summer with Brazil.
His exclusion from Luiz Felipe Scolari’s squad has raised a few eyebrows but the defender chose to focus on the upcoming Champions League final, rather than his World Cup snub.
Miranda added: “Brazil has great players. The fans deserve that Brazil has a brilliant World Cup campaign.
“The Champions League match is one single match against Real Madrid,” the Brazilian concluded in simple terms.
