Less than a month and a half between two photos that perfectly summarize what the League final was for him Atlético de Madrid in general, and for Angel Correa in particular. It was the time that elapsed between the match played by the rojiblanco team at Benito Villamarín and last Saturday at José Zorrilla, which crowned the colchoneros as champions.
On April 11, Atlético visited Betis after falling at the Pizjuán against Sevilla. Carrasco overtook those of Simeone Y Tello tied shortly after. The scoreboard would no longer move, despite the fact that in injury time, Correa enjoyed two heads up that he could not convert. The Argentine, exhausted after a game in which he left everything on the field, was unsuccessful and with the final whistle, he collapsed on those two missed occasions.
The Cholo jumped onto the field to congratulate his players for their effort, but stopped at strap, whom he embraced intensely, in a fatherly way. “I would have loved for the game to end with a Correa goal. It would be the award for everything that works for the team and generates ”, he said. Simeone just after the meeting.
Then she talked to him. He came to tell him that, as soon as he calmed down and did not allow himself to be carried away by anxiety, the ball would enter. The footballer also received affection from the fans (the least criticized him harshly).
And Angelito got up. Boy did he get up. On the following day he scored two goals against Eibar. And four days later, another at Huesca. On the penultimate matchday he scored against the Real society and on Saturday, in the decisive appointment, he achieved a draw against the Valladolid with a sensational action. Trim, twist and shoot with the tip to put the ball out of reach of Masip.
Then the second of Suarez, the title, but without the strapIt would have been useless. He was the protagonist of the champion. And the embrace of Villamarín was repeated on Zorrilla’s lawn, but this time, with a smile from ear to ear on the actors.
