Llorente Will Be Staying At Atlético
Julio Llorente, uncle and agent of Atlético Madrid player Marcos Llorente, has spoken about the Atlético midfielder’s situation, turned into a sort of ‘all-rounder’ by Simeone. He has assured that the player wants to remain at the Spanish side.
Marcos Llorente has won a spot in the heart of the Atlético midfield. After the match at Anfield, the break arrived, but when football returned, the ex-Madrid player has continued performing at a spectacular level. The rumours about his exit started, but his agent has denied them.
In a chat with ‘Radio Marca’, Julio Llorente, Marcos’ uncle and agent, analysed his nephew’s situation. “We are all a little surprised that Simeone has started to play Marcos in such a forward position”, he started saying.
“He’s well equipped to play in that position and understands the location he has to have on the field. If everything goes like that, Simeone will keep putting him there”, he added.
He revealed a little secret that few people know, with regards to his performance in the attacking third. “This many people do not know, until Fernando Morientes placed Marcos Llorente in the Juvenil B midfield, Marcos played as a winger or striker in the Madrid youth academy”, Julio Llorente revealed.
And he ended up reassuring the Atlético fans about his future. “I never turn my phone off as an agent. I have to listen, but Marcos is very happy at Atleti and has already passed it on to me. I don’t think about anything because Marcos doesn’t think about it,” he said to finish.
