Espanyol boss Javier Aguirre believes that Atletico Madrid, who beat his side 1-0 on Saturday, are 'the best team in Europe.'
"Their hard work, humility, and respect makes them the best, as a team, in Spain and the whole of Europe. You have to be humble enough to accept that they have people who are doing really well," Aguirre told reporters at a press conference.
"Without a doubt they're one of the best teams in Europe, they're fighting with Real Madrid and Barcelona for the title."
Atletico recently booked their spot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
