[Atletico Madrid should be rewarded for their victory over Champions League title-holders Liverpool by being handed the trophy if it is not possible to conclude the tournament this season] In the hypothetical case that the Champions League was not played for the coronavirus, then the champion [should be] the one who beat the champion. There are still a few knockout games left, the quarter-finals, the semis and the final. We understand that UEFA tries to centralise all these matches in one city, there was talk of Spain, Portugal… nothing is known yet. There are 11 games left, plus the final phase of the Champions League, which can be four games. I imagine that the government is waiting to see how the pandemic evolves and will take the decision it considers

[No offers for Oblak as Alisson leads summer scramble for top goalkeepers] Nobody has approached us for him. We have his situation under control and we are confident he will form an important part of our team for many years to come.

New signings? We will unveil Rodri on Thursday then Lemar on Friday, and we are working on more deals. We are receptive to possible deals and strengthening our squad

[Atletico’s president Enrique Cerezo has criticised Edinson Cavani for his failed move to the club amid reports his brother demanded a sizeable bonus] Someday I will tell why Cavani did not come and they will prove me right. I don’t want to point anyone out, but I think it’s a shame about the situation of some players with their relatives and their representatives. It’s outrageous. We’re not here to be robbed or do anything strange

[The switch collapsed at the last minute, however, after Cavani’s brother and agent Walter Fernando allegedly wanted Atletico to pay an additional £15m] I don’t want to point anyone out, but I think it’s a shame about the situation of some players with their relatives and their representatives. It’s outrageous. We’re not here to be robbed or do anything strange

[Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has played down the potential impact of the Anfield atmosphere] He who strikes first strikes hardest. To see our fans so committed to the team was amazing. It was absolutely spectacular. Anfield is a great stadium but it’s old. It probably wouldn’t pass the UEFA inspection if it had to do it

[Reflecting on the game, Cerezo felt the Rojiblancos had hit back at critics] I always sleep well. There are days when you taste glory and others when you don’t. According to the media, a week ago we were dead and buried and now we are very much alive. They [Liverpool] had gone 30 games unbeaten and people were saying they are the best team in the world. We are happy with the result but we still have another game to go. But we have rediscovered ourselves and that is the best news

[Cerezo also stressed that Diego Simeone will remain as coach for the long term] We have an excellent coach who will be with us for a long time. And we also have an excellent team

[Rojiblancos president Enrique Cerezo hit out at certain members of Cavani’s family after seeing a January deal break down] I don’t want to point anyone out, but I think it’s a shame about the situation of some players with their relatives and their representatives. It’s outrageous. We’re not here to be robbed or do anything strange

[Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo believes his very special team can win the Champions League without fans] In the league we are in a difficult situation and in Champions we are very good. A few games away from reaching a final, which is where we like to be. He [head coach Simeone] is calm and has confidence in what he does and will direct us to get into the top four

[Looking ahead to 2020-21] There is a possibility that nobody will be signed, but we will have to wait for what happens in the season. The transfers will be very difficult for everyone

[When asked about the prospect of letting their bitter rivals use their home venue] Would we rent them the Wanda Metropolitano? I’m going to take my mask off to answer you. Let no one doubt that we will be at Real Madrid’s disposal
