Atlético de Madrid beat United 0-1 at home and took the passage to the quarterfinals. After the defeat, former English player praised Diego , the Atleti coach.

“If Cholo Simeone directed United, they would have passed,” Scholes shot on the air with the British medium BT Sports, where he was the commentator of the match. Paul Scholes is a great legend in the world of English football and especially in Manchester, the player played from 1993 to 2013, the year he decided to hang up his boots. In that period he played 713 games, scored 152 goals and distributed 76 assists.

In addition, the player is a champion on several occasions, where 11 titles of the Premier League, Champions League and the 2009 Club World Cup stand out.

The feat of Atlético de Madrid

Cholo Simeone’s team arrived at Old Trafford with little chance of being a favourite, as they faced Manchester United and none other than Cristiano Ronaldo, the highest scoring player in football history.

After a tough start to the match, Atlético managed to get comfortable on the field and was able to bother United, so much so that at the end of the first half, after a perfect cross from Griezmann with his less able leg, Renan Lodi received from the other side and put in an accurate header to put the definitive 0-1 and close the global by 2-1 in favor of the Spanish.
