Atletico Mineiro congratulate rivals Cruzeiro on Brazilian league title with cheeky newspaper advert

Historically, Atletico Mineiro and Cruzeiro are not the very best clubs in Brazil or South America.

This season however its a different story.

Atletico Mineiro were crowned Champions of South America, by winning the Copa Libertadores (equivalent of the Champions League) in July.

And, last night, Cruzeiro secured the Brazilian league title much to the delight of everyone associated with the club.

So Atletico Mineiro took out a full page advert, presumably in a local Belo Horizonte paper, simply saying:

“The Champions of the Americas salute the national Champions.”
