MADRID, June 27 (EUROPA PRESS) –
Former Atlético de Madrid player Juanfran Torres admitted this Monday that the Rojiblanco team “needs a right-back” that resembles “or even better” Englishman Kieran Trippier, while also maintaining the continuity of Álvaro Morata and Joao Felix endorsed.
“I’m available, I wish I could be at the level Atlético needs. We need a minimal right-back like Trippier, even better. You don’t have to replace me, it was different times but a great right – come back”, said Juanfran Torres after the presentation of the Mad Cup at the Wanda Metropolitano.
The man from Alicante realized that the names that sounded in support of this position, such as Nahuel Molina or Héctor Bellerín, “are all very good”. “Anyone who comes knows what Atlético is and what the coach wants. If he understands what the club is, he will do well here,” he warned.
I also support the club being able to keep Álvaro Morata. “He has always played in my team, I hope he stays here and I hope that these disputes will be settled with the manager. Simeone is intelligent, if he sees him hungry and eager, he will want to count on him, I keep Morata for a great athlete,” he stressed.
“Please don’t let him go. He’s very good, I trust him a lot, he just lacks regularity but he’s a ‘top’ player,” the former athlete replied of Portuguese striker Joao Felix, recalling that “you have to do magic tricks” to be able to sign, but that all teams are “equal”.
Finally, Juanfran Torres believes that after a difficult past season, because they emerged as “champions”, the mattress team now “must win again”, ironizing the image on social networks of Diego Pablo Simeone playing chess with his son Gio and that there was no king piece on the board. “I haven’t seen her, but if she’s not playing with the king, she’ll think he’s the king,” he decided.
