Simeone admits that Saul could leave Atletico
Diego Simeone, the coach of Atletico Madrid, has opened the doors to Saul Niguez.
It has been reported that the Spanish midfielder could end up in Barcelona. And these speculations have been further increased by the Atletico coach. Simeone said: “Saul is very important for the club. Because he can play in many positions.”
But, he admitted that the player is not very happy. And that he has always asked the club to play more in the position he feels most comfortable.
Either way, Simeone wishes him luck if he goes to Barcelona or anywhere. If he already decides not to stay at Atletico anymore.
“It simply came to our notice then. If he has to leave, I wish him all the best. Wherever he is, in Barcelona or anywhere.”
Saul made his debut for Atletico in 2012, and since then he has made 337 appearances for Simeone’s team, scoring 43 goals and contributing 19 assists.
It is reported that he also loves Manchester United.
