The defender, very excited, makes the end of his relationship with the A. Madrid : “From today I’m just an extra fan”
The first tears of emotion arrived a few seconds after the start of the conference, after Diego Godin greeted players, managers and Atletico president, all present at his farewell press conference at the Wanda Metropolitano:
“These are my last matches here , I wanted you to know it from my words, because for me Atletico was a family and I’m just one more fan of this club “.
The speech before the questions did not last long, but was interrupted a few times by tears, a further sign of the player’s great bond with the environment.
President Cerezo also greeted him: “You have been a key man of the best period in the history of this club. This remains your home, wherever you go next season”.
THE REASONS – After 9 seasons, 8 trophies and 387 matches, the Uruguayan then closes his adventure with the “colchoneros”:
“We have held many meetings with the club, we have not reached an agreement and therefore a stage of my career, beautiful. I’m leaving with a very high head, because I gave everything for this club “.
The defender, very excited, did not want to go back to the reasons that led to the separation, repeating only that he could only thank and respect the club. And the player has not even talked about his next destination, Inter, with which he will sign a three-year contract. Then all the family members of the player went up on the page for a farewell photo, and then all the players and managers present.
