A Thread Detailing The 'Brotherhood' Of Atletico Madrid's Squad Is Incredible

A Thread Detailing The 'Brotherhood' Of Atletico Madrid's Squad Is Incredible

It was a joy to watch. Atletico's dominance of Italian champions Juventus came as a big shock to many, and on the surface it looks like one of the biggest Champions League upsets this season.

But if you dig a little deeper and look at the overall make-up of this incredible group of players, then your opinion on Diego Simeone's 'brotherhood' will change.

Something that stands out in this team is longevity. In Atleti's starting eleven last night, not a single player had spent fewer than five years at the club.

In fact, the average time spent at the club in that XI per player is 8.67 years - a remarkable stat considering the state of modern day football.

Not only is their loyalty admirable but after last night's display it is blindingly obvious that these players want to play and win for Simeone.

Their record under the Argentinian is something else.

Twitter user Zach Lowy has since compiled a number of brilliant tweets following their 2-0 win.

He details the chemistry and mentality of this wonderful group and well, I kind of want Atletico to win the Champions League after reading this.

"You can give Cristiano Ronaldo €340 million in wages, you can make a laundry list of free transfers, you can build an amazing dynasty and one of the most stacked teams in Europe. But at the end of the day, whether you're Barça, Bayern or Juve, you'll fail to break down Atleti."
