It’s been two days, but fans of the Atlético de Madrid they continue to see in a loop the 2-1 achieved by Luis Suarez in the 88th minute of the match against Osasuna and the celebration of it. Madness broke out in the Metropolitan, with all the players, including the substitutes, making a pineapple on the Uruguayan.
Aside from Suarez taking off his shirt to celebrate with anger a goal that was worth gold, the celebration left many details that we highlight below.
1. SIMEONE, JEKYLL AND MR HYDE
El Cholo, who lived the game with great intensity and nervousness, reached the climax with Suárez’s goal. While everyone was heading to the place where the Uruguayan was celebrating, he ran in the opposite direction. A turn that he aimed was to cost him the fall. Of course, he quickly turned around, but not to join the pineapple, but to claim the presence of Kondogbia, whom he went to look for to ask him to quickly enter the field.
2. VITOLO STAYED TO SEE THEM COME
In his attempt to burn all the ships, Simeone decided to bring Vitolo into the field. You had to win at all costs, and the Argentine thought about adding another offensive footballer. But the game didn’t stop until Suarez made it 2-1. And then Cholo changed his mind. Vitolo got dressed again (after celebrating the goal with everyone with the kit, as he was going to leave now) and Kondogbia entered the field.
3. THE ECSTASY OF GIMÉNEZ
The Uruguayan, who was once again out of the eleven when not being one hundred percent, lived the meeting with great tension, to the point of biting tape, the result of nerves. When his compatriot introduced the ball into Osasuna’s goal, he came down with a bullet from the stands to join the team’s celebration.
4. THE PASSION OF VRSALJKO AND CARRASCO
The Croat, who has not participated in a few games, was one of the most effusive in the celebration. And instead of joining the pineapple, he found Yannick Carrasco, author of the pass to Suárez, on the way. The Belgian caught him in suspense and it cannot be ruled out that the moment of passion did not end in a kiss.
5. SAVIC, THE FASTEST
When the ball driven by Luis Suárez entered Sergio Herrera’s goal, Stefan Savic was the furthest outfield player and therefore furthest from the action. But that did not stop the Montenegrin from coming second! to congratulate the Uruguayan for his goal. Only Joao Félix arrived before him.
6. KOKE’S COLD HEAD
A captain is always a captain. Let them tell Koke, who was the only Atlético player who did not participate in the pineapple to celebrate Suárez’s 2-1. The Vallecano took the ball from the goal, took it calmly and then sent it to the stands. Rage and accumulated tension that led the midfielder to act like this, in addition to staying on the field in case Osasuna was tempted to put the ball into play quickly.
7. THE RACE OF THE ‘COJO’ LEMAR
The Frenchman was Atlético’s only casualty for Sunday’s game. A muscle injury has left him out of the last two appointments, and makes it a serious doubt for Saturday in Valladolid. Well, the Frenchman did not hesitate to go down from the stands to the grass, dressed in street clothes, to join the celebration. Of course, his speed was not high and he was even limping at some point.
8. THANKS TO THE ASSISTANT
After the madness that was unleashed in the 2-1 celebration, and when all his teammates got rid of him, Luis Suárez got up and went to look for Carrasco, the one who gave him the step, to thank him for his assistance. They both merged into a hug.
9. WHO IS THAT BOY?
Many fans wondered who that boy was, in a white T-shirt and modern jeans, who was in the team’s pineapple after Suárez’s goal. Well, doubt resolved. This is Christian Gómez, Atlético B goalkeeper, who was in the stands with the substitutes and who was one more in the montonera.
