Guilavogui role to increase

Diego Simeone and the coaching staff at Atletico Madrid reportedly see Josuha Guilavogui as ready to take on increased prominence in the team.

The 23-year-old signed for Atleti in the summer from Saint-Etienne, but had to wait until October for his League debut and November for his Champions League debut and has generally been left out of the first team picture.

Believed to be reasoned as Simeone and his coaching staff’s preference to have the player fully adapted to the physical demands and tactical mechanisms of the team, as well as the culture of moving to Spain, reports now are that the player is seen as ready to take on an increased role.

AS believe that the midfielder is seen as increasingly ready and is in line to start in the midweek Champions League group stage meeting with Porto, before taking on a first start in La Liga before the close of 2013.
