Atletico Madrid will have Luis Aragones’ names on their shirts for the Champions League final

On 1st February 2014, Luis Aragones lost his life to leukemia, aged 75. Most recently he led Spain to the European Championship in 2008, but he is most fondly remembered by Atletico fans, after having spent the last 10 years of his playing career with them and managing them in four separate tenures.

As a player he won 3 league titles and 2 Copa Del Rey crowns, while also leading the club to a league title as a manager, besides a few domestic titles and other cup competitions. The one trophy that continues to escape Atletico though, is that European Cup.

On Saturday, Atletico Madrid face their neighbours, Real Madrid, in the 2014 Champions League final. The last time the club reached this stage was in 1974 with a certain Luis Aragones playing in midfield and captaining the side, a day when they lost to Bayern Munich. Now as they return to have another go at the crown after 40 years, Atletico Madrid will wear Luis Aragones’ name across the inside of the collar as they remember their legend in the biggest game of their history.
