Cerezo raises Tevez & Falcao doubts

Enrique Cerezo has admitted that it will be “very difficult” for Atletico Madrid to sign Carlos Tevez and Radamel Falcao this summer.

The Colombian striker has been linked with a return to the Vicente Calderon after seeing his loan spell at Manchester United end, while a move has been mooted for the Juventus star, but the President insists there is nothing to report on the pair.

“Fans always dream of new signings, but I think the team are very good as they are,” he told Radio4G.

“Having said that, we’ll bring two or three reinforcements.

“[On Tevez and Falcao], it’d be very difficult [to bring them in] and I don’t think there’s anything happening right now.

“Our staff are working on strengthening two or three areas of the squad, while [Antoine Griezmann] is not for sale.

“Our fans must be aware that both Enrique Cerezo and Miguel Angel Gil won’t hold back any of our financial resources in building a great team.

“[On Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao fans booing the Spanish national anthem before the Copa del Rey final], I’ve always said that football must be watched with friends or family and if your team lose then it’s because your team lost and vice versa.

“What we can’t have is a political act being deliberately staged before a game. Football has nothing to do with politics, although lately they have been mixed together.”
