Carrasco delighted with Atleti progress

Yannick Carrasco has expressed his delight at being named Atletico Madrid fans’ player of the month for October.

The winger enjoyed a breakout October, scoring three goals in five matches, to earn the hearts of Los Colchoneros supporters, and he is determined to enjoy more success, starting against Real Betis on Sunday.

“I am very happy that I’ve been chosen for this month and hopefully it’s not the first or last [monthly award I win],” he told Atleti’s official website.

“I hope I’m chosen again, next month or at another time. I think I’ve done well for the past month, and little by little I’m integrating more and more into the team.

“[Real Betis on Sunday] will be a very difficult match , but we have what it takes to win every game.”
