Officially from Simeone: I do not want Torres to stay at Atletico
Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has revealed that he does not intend to insist Fernando Torres to renew his contract with the “matuscats” that expires this summer. At the press conference before the Europa League against Copenhagen, the Argentine specialist was visibly annoyed by a series of journalist questions, the latter laconically admitting that he was not ready to cooperate for a new Torres contract.
Here’s how the conversation between them:
Journalist: Grossman will probably continue with you next season.
Simeone: Is this statement or question?
Journalist: Grossman will probably continue with you next season. You did everything you could to make it happen. Are you ready to stay Torres?
Simeone: I do not understand the comparison. What are the goals with this comparison?
Journalist: I would like to know if you are willing to try to hold Fernando Torres for another year.
Journalist: Thank you.
