But Diego Simeone? As he jogs quickly off the field following an exchange with his opposite number - he's in a definite rush - there seems little that he can do wrong. The long-time boss of the Rojiblancos deserves a second league title to have next to his name - and he looks almost certain to get it now.
What a story it would have been for a newly promoted team to beat Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico in the same campaign. Cadiz, in fairness, never came too close to victory here - but they threatened to snatch a point for so much of this game. Alvaro Cervera had his head in his hands at the final whistle. This one stings a bit.
Doubles from Luis Suarez and Alvaro Negredo ensured a pulsating encounter in La Liga that twisted and turned like a roller-coaster - but Atletico Madrid's champion mettle shone through in the end thanks to Saul and Koke's extra efforts and a slice of VAR luck against a resilient Cadiz. Full-time at Estadio Ramon de Carranza, it finishes Cadiz 2-4 Atletico Madrid.
