Atletico move into the future at wonderful Wanda Metropolitano

  |   Football / Sports / ISL

The future starts here for Atletico Madrid.

For a club so fond of remembering the past, the Paseo de los Melancólicos and the glory days at the old but always atmospheric Vicente Calderon, the move to the Wanda Metropolitano was difficult for some supporters to take.

When they saw their new home, however, everything changed.

Saturday's spectacular inauguration of Atletico's new stadium will live long in the memory and afterwards, coach Diego Simeone admitted: "I have never seen anything like it. I will remember it for the rest of my life."

He will not be the only one. Atletico beat Malaga 1-0 thanks to an Antoine Griezmann goal in the second half, the France forward perhaps a fitting first scorer at the new stadium, further cementing his status as a symbol for this club.
