Why I placed Real Madrid flag on Calderon - Nacho

Real Madrid defender Nacho celebrated last night’s win by placing a Madrid flag on the Vicente Calderon turf, much like how Koke had placed an Atleti flag on the Bernabeu pitch after the Copa del Rey final in 2013.

But Nacho wasn’t seeking revenge. He has insisted his act was innocent and only intended for the travelling Real supporters.

"I did it for the Madridistas, because they deserved it for having come to support us," the 27-year-old said, via Marca. "Not to offend anyone."

Atleti supporters were too busy ripping out the seats at the Vicente Calderon to care, but Nacho’s action probably irked a few of Atleti’s players following what was a heated affair.
