“Atleti today can beat anyone. It was shown again that in football there is nothing written,” he added.
“I will not lie to you, of course, I see myself in the Atleti coaching staff, Because of the link with the fans, how I know the club, how I know the squad and the current coach. I see my self in the Atletico Madrid’s coaching staff in the future, ” said the 36-year-old, who is currently playing for the Qatari club AI Sadd SC.
