While the Roji Blancos are at the top of the La Liga table with a seven-point lead, their captain aims for bigger achievements in their outstanding season as they will face Chelsea in the Champions League last 16 next month.
“In the Champions League I have suffered the worst defeats I remember,”
told an interview with Mundo Deportivo.
“I don’t know if I will win the Champions League, but every season gives you a chance to win it.
“When the season starts we are all at the same point in the group stage.
“Hopefully we have a chance to win it. There would be nothing more beautiful than lifting a Champions League with Atletico.”
The Slovenian international has played a key role in
excellent start to the season with keeping
11 clean-sheets in his 18 league starts
as he’s close to winning the Zamora Trophy for the fifth consecutive season.
