Two finals in the space of a couple of months and two losses, no, two heartbreaking, soul-sucking, gut-wrenching losses. One came via penalties to Atletico’s arch rivals after playing so well to get his side to the final. The next came in his home nation with an extra-time strike against a team France were heavily favoured to beat.

Let’s hope, as Rojiblancos, that he returns to Madrid and his friends gather round him, helping him to get back on track and win silverware next year, not for the club’s sake but for his sake! He is too good to keep losing like this.
