Francisco Narvaez Kiko, former Atletico Madrid Winger has stated that he feels his former club is more prepared this time for the Champions League final, in comparision to the 2014 Champions League final in Lisbon.
“I see Atletico is more ready now. Two years ago Arda Turan had some problems and Diego Costa was injured. But now, I feel the team is better, physically and mentally,” Kiko said.
Kiko said he felt inspired by the squad assembled and formed as a unit by manager Diego Simeone.
He also said that the 2014 final would act as a good experience for the team, and the team will be more inspired this time.
Kiko who won a double with the Rojiblancos, said he felt Zidane and Simeone had a very similar tactical approach and the UCL final will not be a goal bonanza.
Kiko also feels that Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres will play a crucial role in Milan, owing to his spectacular form.
