Geoffrey kondogbia was one of the players of the Atlético de Madrid most prominent in Saturday’s match against the Elche, which ended with a long-suffering victory for the rojiblanco team, which continues to lead the standings for another week.
The French footballer completed a great performance as ‘5’ of the team, in a date in which Diego Simeone practically the entire center of the field changed after the defeat suffered last week in San Mamés against the Athletic.
Kondogbia made ten recoveries and his success in the pass exceeded 88% effectiveness. Numbers that corroborate the good feelings that he offered on the pitch and that led the mattress coach to praise him in the press room after the conclusion of the game. He did it, in addition, forcefully.
“I am still happy with the work of footballers who have the patience to work, football and life give you back your effort. Kondogbia always worked in the same way, he trained with the enthusiasm and enthusiasm to improve and trying to grow and, when he got the chance, he took it. Those are the players we want at Atlético de Madrid “, he sentenced.
Now it remains to be seen if Simeone decides to give continuity to the Frenchman, who took advantage of the rest granted to Koke to earn a place. In addition, both players ended the match playing together, something that could be repeated at the Camp Nou from the start of the match. As of Tuesday, when the team returns to work in Majadahonda, doubts will be resolved.
