Gaitain ‘hasn’t spoken to Cholo’

Atletico Madrid’s Nico Gaitain has arrived in Madrid but hasn’t spoken to Diego Simeone. ‘He’s followed me for a few years, that’s a positive…’

Gaitan joins from Benfica and admitted when questioned by reporters that it was a wrench to leave Lisbon, but his head is in Vicente Calderon now.

“I was there for many years, and when you’re there for many years it’s normal it hurts to leave. Now I’m just thinking of Atletico,” he said, Marca reports.

“I haven’t spoken with Simeone. I want to meet my teammates and start working. The Coach has followed me for a few years, and that’s a positive, when the Coach is looking for you for a few years. We’ll see day-to-day how I go with training.”
