After the transfer of David Villa, Atletico Madrid has dealt another blow on the transfer market. The Iberians have ensured the defense transferring on Martin Demichelis, the player remaining free agent after separation from Malaga.
Demichelis admitted that Diego Simeone, Atletico’s coach, had an important role in his choice, the Argentinean choosing the team from Madrid instead to remain at Malaga or to return to his homeland to River Plate.
“I was in Argentina and I’m going to stay there, but then appeared the version Atletico and Simeone was the argument that convinced me to be part of a great group that has always fought for trophies. He was the main reason I chose Atletico, “admitted the 32 years old defender, who signed a one year contract with the former holder of the Europa League trophy and Copa del Rey winner in the 2012/2013 season.
Grown at River Plate, Martin Demichelis was noted in the seven years he spent at Bayern Munich. In 2011 he was transferred to Malaga, team that reached the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals this year, where they were very close to eliminate Borussia Dortmund.
