Reciélme Crowned Best Player in the Match
The 23-year-old left-back, Reciélme, shone brightly and achieved a crucial victory for Atlético Madrid in the Champions League.
The young Spaniard, who grew up in Atlético's academy, found himself in a state of shock when awarded the best player in the match as he left the field, struggling to maintain composure. Social media platforms for the club shared an emotional video revealing his astounding reaction upon receiving the award.
After receiving the award, Reciélme exclaimed in amazement: "Is this real? Are you not kidding me? I can't believe it. Is this true?"
He added with astonishment: "This is very special for me, as I struggled for a long time to be able to play here, at Atlético Madrid, which truly is the central club in my life."
