Atletico Madrid fans show support for Koke

 
Atletico Madrid supporters came out in force to show their support for under fire skipper Koke.
 
The Spanish international has come in for criticism so far this season, with some sections of the Atletico fanbase unhappy with him being named as captain.
 
Diego Simeone originally wanted to deploy a captaincy group for the 2019-20 season, following the summer departure of Diego Godin.
 
However he abandoned those plans, in favouring of naming the Vallecas-born midfielder as full time captain.
 
Koke's form has dipped following the upheaval, but the home fans made clear the feelings towards the midfielder in their 2-0 win over Athletic Bilbao.
 
Los Rojiblancos sang his name throughout the second half, echoing the sentiment of former Atletico star Antoine Griezmann, who came out in support of his former teammate last week.
