Atletico Madrid man, Koke has revealed he is only focused on making history and not thinking about revenge against Real Madrid.
Atletico were mere minutes away from claiming a maiden title in 2014, only for Sergio Ramos’ injury time goal to force extra time, with the los blancos claiming their 10th UCL trophy with a 4-1 thrashing of their neighbours.
Saturday’s match against Madrid at San Siro is the only thing standing between the club and a maiden Champions League triumph, and Koke believes that will be their greatest motivation.
“It’s a new, great, wonderful opportunity. Revenge isn’t on our minds because no one can go back in time and give us back the Lisbon final,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“We just want to create history by winning the first Champions League for the club.
“Statistics are there to be broken and to change. Our goal is to come back with the cup.”
