The Belgian footballer made that statement by relying on the Colchoneros’ two lost finals against Real Madrid.
Athletic of Madrid has an almost unbeatable chance to keep the Champions League and Yannick Carrasco, currently on loan at the Colchonero, gave his point of view on the matter.
In dialogue with Marca, the Belgian footballer said: “It is true that Atlético deserves a Champions League after losing two finals in such difficult circumstances. After being ahead and conceding at the last minute in the first and then losing on penalties in the second, I think Atlético deserves to win this trophy. “
On the quarter-final match, he commented: “We respect RB Leipzig, they are a good and competitive team. They finished third in Germany, which means they are a good team. It will be a difficult match and we will need to know how to hurt them to win the match”.
Finally, Carrasco referred to his contractual situation and closed: “I’m here until the final of the Champions League. I don’t know if I’ll stay longer, I’m not the one you have to talk to about that. I’m very happy here and it would be great. to be able to stay longer at Atlético, but you know that in the negotiations I don’t have the last word. “
