Chicharito was ecstatic after scoring tonight’s winning goal. A journalist stopped him before walking off the field:

“It’s a derby, it belongs to everyone, it was my turn to score, but the victory is everyone’s. I was patient and my teammates believed in me, as well as my family, this goal is for them.”

“We live in the present. Every goal in my career is important, but the credit goes to everyone. It was a great pass from Cristiano and a great job by everyone.” (When asked if it was the most important goal of his career.)

“Ancelotti told me to prepare for this match and perform the same as in recent matches.”

“Atletico made it to the final and won the league, they were a good rival. To win the Champions you have to beat everyone.”
