Atlético has been shivering up. Morata’s injury, together with the long-term loss of Diego Costa, has left Simeone without its two starting points, whose goal is to be able to stand against Liverpool (February 18). However, the constant physical problems that plague the team can grant Ivan Saponjic the opportunity Which has been waiting all season. The Serbian striker has patiently endured the wait that has meant spending his first six months in the club between the stands and the bench, always training to the fullest without a bad face or a bad gesture. Until January 23, in the Copa del Rey game against Cultural Leonesa, where he jumped into the field for the first time. They were 60 minutes, extension included, in a match where he had two chances to debut as a scorer. Three days later he would play the last four minutes of the game against Leganés where with a header he was also close to touching the glory of the goal. A total of 64 minutes for a Saponjic that next Saturday against Granada could enjoy its first title in Atlético. Simeone tested the Serbian in an attack pair with Vitolo During the training today and at the end of the exercises he dedicated an aside with the player where he tried his shot and Cholo explained what he wants from him. The rest of the team would be formed by Oblak; Vrsaljko, Savic, Beautiful, Lodi; Thomas, Saul, Koke and Correa. In the little that has been seen the ’17’ has stood out for his back play, his physical strength and his ability in the air game. Saponjic has been clear since his arrival at the club last summer that he wants to succeed as a rojiblanco. 22 year old player He didn’t want to hear about an exit in the winter market although he had not even made his debut and strikers of Atlético B as Poveda or Camel They had counted more for Cholo. Before Granada, his work in silence could have the prize of ownership. Atlético needs a goal (22 in 22 days) and the Serbian can be a trick in search of finding that treasure that so many points have been collected so far this year.
