We hope 2017 is better for Atletico, says Saul

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 393

After finishing third in La Liga and losing to Real Madrid in the Champions League final last season, the Spanish midfielder is hoping for more next year.

Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul has praised a good year for the club but has said he hopes 2017 is even better after the Madrid side progressed to the Copa del Rey last 16.

Saul and Co. made light work of minnows Guijuelo 4-1 in the second leg on Tuesday as they won the lopsided round-of-32 tie 10-1 on aggregate.

The comprehensive victory capped off a fine year for Atletico heading into the mid-season break, after the Spaniards reached the final of the Champions League, while they finished just three points behind LaLiga winners Barcelona in 2015-16.

Reflecting on 2016, Saul said: "We could have won some titles that we fought for, but it's been a very good year for us.

"We hope that 2017 is better." 

Atletico are sixth in the La Liga standings, six points adrift of second-placed Barca and nine behind leaders Real Madrid.

Saul and Atletico will resume their season against Eibar on January 7.
