Atlético’s training this Thursday has not been easy. The KO in the Cup has been a new blow to the spirit of a team that had already been touched for weeks. The dressing room, yes, received the support of an old colleague at Cerro del Espino. Saúl took advantage of the fact that he had a day off with Chelsea to stop by the facilities, say hello and send encouragement.
The youth squad is on loan to the London team and remains very attentive to Atlético’s progress from London. This Wednesday, without going very far, he published the message ‘Never stop believing’ on his social networks a few minutes after the defeat against Real Sociedad. He also ‘liked’ a comment that asked him to return to Atleti. His loan ends in June and the club and the player will assess his future.
Saúl chatted with his former teammates at Cerro del Espino and encouraged them and reminded them that they have already come out of other very difficult situations, both in terms of sensations and results. He does trust that Atleti will straighten the course. At the exit of the Hill, according to Jugones de La Sexta, the footballer chatted with fans and even gave a Chelsea shirt to a fan who asked for a photo.
Thus, the central midfielder is very attentive to what is happening at Atlético, while trying to convince Tuchel to be important at Chelsea in the final stretch of the season, after a difficult start at Stamford Bridge. When the course ends, the conversations will resume. With a contract at the rojiblanco club until 2026, many fans are already demanding that he return.
