Marcos Llorente was a former Real Madrid player.
However, he never got to showcase his talent and 18 months after leaving Real for Atletico, Llorente has revealed how it works at Wanda Metropolitano.
He said, “Well, one plays in white and the other in red and white… they are both huge clubs who are fighting for the same titles every year. I was at Real Madrid and now I’m at Atlético with different teammates, a different manager, at a different club. One has nothing to do with the other.
“What I can say now is that I’m really happy at Atlético, we’re a very united family with a very tight squad and we show that on the pitch, the technical staff, the players, the people at the club, physios, kit people, the photographers… everybody gets along well with each other and that makes for a positive atmosphere every day.
“I’m really happy that I came to Atlético and I don’t regret anything.”
Atletico Madrid are at an excellent stage of their season. They are on top of the La Liga table with games in hand and a title charge seems more than on for the Roja Blancos with both Real Madrid and Barcelona faltering every other game week.
