Nervous and wanting to celebrate, the Uruguayan Diego Forlan awaits the meeting in which this Saturday the Athletic Madrid could be consecrated champion of La Liga against the Valladolid.
“Looking forward to the game and for the result that all of us at Atlético want to get.“The former soccer player told Efe this Friday during an interview with Efe.
Also, he emphasized that the duel between the two teams will be “very interesting” and underlines that it will also be “complicated and hard”, if one takes into account that the local is fighting not to lose the category.
On the other hand, Forlán referred to the situation of his former teammate in the Uruguayan team Luis Suarez, who could raise the trophy in the first season that he disputes under the orders of the Argentine Diego Simeone.
“Happy that the club has benefited from his departure from Barcelona, having arrived at Atlético de Madrid and today being one of the key players to have the opportunity to be champion,” he said.
He also stressed that this is not a revenge for the scorer but that he is only doing “what he has to do” and “enjoying the moment he is living.”
Finally, Forlán, coach of Atenas SAD of the Uruguayan Second Division, said that this Saturday he will be in training and he still does not know if he will be able to watch the game on television. However, he stressed that if he cannot do it, he will still look at it later.
In addition, he added that although he is going to analyze what is happening in the game, he will also look at him “as a”.
After going through Independiente de Argentina, Manchester United in England and Villarreal in Spain, Forlán arrived at Atlético de Madrid in 2007 and remained there until 2012. With the rojiblanco team, the Uruguayan won a Europa League and a European Super Cup.
