Insua rejects claims of Atleti doubts

Emiliano Insua says he had no doubts about moving to Atletico Madrid, following his switch from Sporting Lisbon.

The 24-year-old has joined the Madrid-based club for a fee believed to be in the region of 3.5 million euros, with the former Liverpool defender unveiled to media on Tuesday following the successful completion of a medical.

“I did not think twice about it, nor have any doubts like it was suggested, I decided straight away to negotiate with Atletico Madrid,” he told reporters.

“It is a dream I have had since I was a child, it is a dream of every player to be in this team.

“(Sporting director Jose Luis) Caminero called me directly. When I got the call I could not believe it.”

The former Galatasaray player also spoke of his excitement of working Atleti coach Diego Simeone ahead of his proposed debut at the weekend.

“Will I play this weekend? I’m fit, I’m looking forward and I have much ambition to start work as soon as possible,” he said.

“I am unable to say if the coach will pick me. It is up to him.

“Simeone is a great coach. He was a great player and now he is proving how great he is at coaching too and I am thrilled that I can work under him, to continue to learn.”
