Nor questions about the visit of Thibaut Courtois the Metropolitan, nor the premiere of Álvaro Morata before the red and white fans disturbed Diego Pablo Simeone. The Atletico coach appeared in the press room of Cerro del Espino on one of those days that does not want noise away from what may happen to the grass. The first question about who was his goalkeeper and his new forward used one of his usual escapades: "We have a game against an opponent that is growing since the arrival of Solari. We know that they are very deep if you play Vinicus or Bale, with Lucas Vázquez on the right, Benzema is in a fantastic moment … We hope to have a scenario as always shown by the people of Atlético, as a result of the rival we are going to face ".
"I can not put myself in the place of the people to understand the feeling that may have, Courtois is a great goalkeeper, when he was with us he did very well and now he is in a great moment, as he has always been in the teams that he has played since he left Atlético, "added Simeone.
Asked about his relationship with Solari, which he directed in San Lorenzo de Almagro, El Cholo related the good relationship they maintain: "I've known Santiago for a long time, I had to direct him at the end of his career in San Lorenzo and gave us hierarchy and category. We are in common places for dinner or lunch, is a guy who is trained and has shown personality and being Argentine makes me very happy. "
Questioned why Real Madrid player is decisive, Simeone responded without hesitation: "Modric, it still is." To conclude, another question about whether Morata will celebrate the goals or not and another break: "We will try to take the match where we want and hopefully we get everything.
