Atleti: Cup very important to us

Enrique Cerezo has made clear that Atletico Madrid are taking the Copa del Rey seriously this season.

Atleti host city rivals Getafe on Wednesday night in the first leg of their Last 16 clash and for Cerezo, he has every faith that Coach Diego Simeone will be on message about the club’s feelings towards the competition.

“Simeone knows what to do, it is his responsibility and he will bring the best players. He will put out a good starting XI because the Copa is very important to us,” commented the President to reporters today.

“The team is doing fine, whilst Falcao looks great, he is scoring goals in every game. He is great and we all know that.”
