Simeone waiting for Gelson’s “talent” in the King’s Cup
Atletico Madrid coach confirms that he will bet on the Portuguese international against UE Sant Andreu.
Atletico Madrid faces UE Sant Andreu on Tuesday for the first leg of the fourth round of the King’s Cup. A duel against a third-tier team of Spanish football, which will allow Gelson to add a few minutes.
In the preview press conference at the start, Diego Simeone acknowledged that he will take advantage to launch some players who have had less use, as is the case of the extreme ex-Sporting, who only has 57 minutes to serve the mattresses.
“We have an important game, where competition in any industry that we speak of is a matter of taste as to which we can choose. We have four fantastic midfielders, young men with absolutely different characteristics from each other, and advanced players who played a lot and others who had fewer minutes, “he said in statements reproduced by the Spanish newspaper Marca.
“Those who have fewer minutes need to get involved, understand the needs of the team and show the talent that brought them to Atletico. Like Kalinic or Gelson, it’s the guys who have the least minutes. I hope you can make a good game, “he added.
