Diego Simeone said he was pleased with the passion shown from his squad after
The Argentine hailed the character and passion showed by his side after a somewhat abject display against the Bundesliga outfit.
Alvaro Morata scored the winner with just over 10 minutes to play, and Simeone suggested that there is always a path to victory, no matter how well his side is playing.
Atletico have not been short of passion since Simeone joined as manager in 2011, competing with Real Madrid and Barcelona at the top of La Liga, reaching two Champions League finals, as well as winning the Europa League.
Simeone's ability to implement a plan B is why they are so difficult to beat at the Wanda Metropolitano. They have not lost at home since February, when they were beaten 3-1 by Real Madrid, which was their only defeat at home since August 2018.
However, their lack of attacking prowess has seen supporters turn on Atletico at times, but Simeone sympathised with them.
