The first reinforcements arrive for Simeone

This Saturday, Atlético de Madrid finished their pre-season stage in Los Angeles de San Rafael. A positive balance but in which there were still few first team players. A first phase of the preparation in which it has been supported especially by players of the Academy and footballers who returned after a loan.

Diego Pablo Simeone has been able to work in this period with the three goals: Oblak, Grbic Y San Roman; the defenders Savic, Arias Y Handsome; the midfielders Saul Y Kondogbia; and the attackers Mark Paulo Y Saponjic. Some of them do not even have their permanence in the team insured.

Well this week the rojiblancos are waiting for some reinforcements to fine-tune the team as is the case with Lemar, Vrsaljko Y Yannick Carrasco. Let us remember that in principle, the team plans are three weeks of vacation for each footballer as required by the AFE. Another issue is that there are players who decide to shorten their rest to put themselves before the orders of the Cholo.

In this way, this Tuesday they should return to training both Lemar What Vrsaljko. Many focuses will be placed on the French footballer who last year exploded as a player under the command of the Cholo after two years without much prominence. Last season he could not finish it on the field due to an injury. In principle, he will be fully recovered, because he had minutes with France on the Eurocup.

While the Croatian will return with an eye on his future. His permanence in the squad is not guaranteed. He has overcome a serious knee injury that has had several relapses and his future could be outside of Atlético de Madrid. It will be necessary to see what decision the Cholo about.

The last to arrive this week would be Yannick Carrasco. The player is expected for Saturday, although he could return earlier to start training with the rest of his teammates. last season he became one of the great stars of the team. His participation was decisive for the
Atlético de Madrid
champion. Allowed him to Simeone give a turn to the system with his defensive involvement, to this we must add that he scored important goals as against him Barcelona and gave vital assists like that of 2-1 against Osasuna on the penultimate day.

In this way little by little the pupils of the Cholo to the dynamics of the team after a very complicated campaign marked by Covid 19.

The next to arrive will be Luis Suarez Y Gimenez who will return on Monday, July 26, a few days later they will join Koke Y Marcos Llorente placeholder image. And the following will be on August 2 when they will return Trippier, Renan Lodi, Correa Y Rodrigo de Paul. They still do not have a return date because two footballers are in competition such as Herrera who plays the gold Cup with Mexico Y Nehuén Pérez what will he dispute The Olympic Games with Argentina.
