Former Atlético player and coach Marcel Domingo has passed away early on Saturday. The Frenchman was 86 years old.

The goalkeeper played for Atlético and won the Spanish league in 1949/50 and 1950/51.

From 1969 to 1972 he returned to coach the club.

With Domingo as coach, Atleti won the Spanish title in 1969/70. Along with Luis Aragonés, Domingo was one of only two people to win the title both as player and coach of Atlético.

Tonight ahead of our league match against Deportivo Domíngo was honoured with a minute’s silence.
