Atlético de MadridTOTheir continuity in Atlético is played in the remaining games of the season
Vthey managed the machado against Liverpool from the wing. Simeone decided that neither of them, nor with the result against, would tread on Anfield’s green in search of the feat that finally added him to the legend of the Attic. 15 players recruited El Cholo during the match without paying attention to two footballers who, due to conditions,they are among the most gifted of the rojiblanco squad. We speak, of course, of Thomas Lemar and Yannick Carrasco.
When the competition returns to normalBoth will face the greatest challenge of convincing, both the tenant on the bench and those who send in the offices, that they deserve defending the shield of those of the Metropolitan next year. That his undeniable talent deserves continuity even when it is obvious that none has just taken off or even managed to start when injuries have plagued an already short squad.
Let’s start withLemar, second most expensive signing in the history of the club and a continuous I want and I can notdespite the fact that his left foot was considered one of the most projected in Europe. Hence, the Athletics will pay 72 kilos for 70% of their rights. Hence, Simeone has given him countless opportunities, hoping to obtain that quality jump that is typical of a player of his cost, quality and conditions.
With a contract until 2023, with just 24 years on his ID, the 10 has suffered two injuries in this 2020 in which his role has become residual. The bench ration that he is taking is joined (he has hardly been a starter against Liverpool in the Metropolitan) in what we have a year that will be decisive for his future.In January, in fact, he was chosen to make the necessary salary gap for the arrival of Cavani.The signing of the Uruguayan, who ended up being a soap opera, was frustrated, and Lemar will have a new opportunity to demonstrate that he can be up to the task when normality returns and the ball rolls again. Otherwise, you have plenty of ballots to go out next summer.
For his part, Carrasco lives his second chance on the first line, his after a strange step back to the Chinese League.. At just 24 years old he went to less competitive football and, in his no less surprising return, is having a hard time getting back to the physical excellence that is needed if you want to play Simeone. As Lemar has hardly been a starter in this 2020, against Espanyol, and his role is still inconsequential waiting for the fast and unbalanced footballer who became very important in the 15-16 season, where his goal in Milón took the Atlético to caress the Champions League.
This obligatory stop should serve the Belgian, who is loaned until June with a purchase option, to recover that electric dribble that is unmatched in the Red and White squad. The impudence to face and overcome rivals is the great quality of a footballer who can also provide that necessary quota of goals in a team that suffers from punch and needs so many offensive players to add up.
Both, if there were few similarities, share space on the lawn. Although the Belgian can play on the right and at the tip, where he has played in his first appearances due to the injuries of Costa and Joao Flix, his favorite position is the left wing. The same one in which he will have to compete with Lemar (among other players looking to make merits like Vitolo) in this final sprint to strip the future of two of the great talents of the current Athletic.Two talents who, however, may be at their last chance as rojiblancos.
