Diego has vented his frustration after Atletico Madrid failed to make an offer to Wolfsburg to keep him at the club on a permanent basis.
The 27-year-old arrived in the Spanish capital after falling out with Wolves boss Felix Magath at the tail end of the 2010-11 campaign, and subsequently excelled under Diego Simeone’s leadership as he went on to lift the Europa League trophy.
The midfielder is keen to stay with Atletico on a permanent basis, but he admits he is beginning to harbour doubts about the possibility of plying his trade.
“First, I want to thank the fans for the affection (shown to me). It was special to me and was instrumental in our success into reality. I will never forget in my life, the moments that I lived with them. Always be in my heart,” Diego told Marca.
“There is still no offer from Atletico and that means something. I now do not think I am among the priorities of the club and I do not know why, but I understand them anyway.
“I already made a financial investment at the beginning of last season and even waited until the last minute for Atletico, who finally arrived.
“I played as well as I could to make the club invest in me (permanently), but things are not given. The rest is up to me. I starred on the field for the club to act now.”
