Atletico de Madrid Best Club of the Year
In the first Awards edition, in December 2010, Gil was awarded as Best Director of the year, after having brought the Atletico de Madrid back to the old splendors, conquering the Europe League (beating the Fulham 2-1) and the European Super Cup in Monaco, Platini’s home, during the UEFA’s feast and going beyond the Inter (European champions) 2-0. Now, after two years, the ECA nominated again the Atletico de Madrid as it was able to win again the European League, this time against the Bilbao and the European Super Cup, against the Chelsea. Four successes in Europe in three years, always confirmed against the champions in office, make the Atletico de Madrid the Best Club of the year. An award to the management capability and to the character of a team that after its first double triumph, transferred its best player, Aguero, in England. They receive their award aware of the fact they can count on another star as Radamel Falcao. Greetings to Gil and to the Atletico.
