6-19 News & Rumor

Posted by atleti on June 19, 2007


After losing a UEFA spot in the final two games of the season, Atletico Madrid have extended JAVIER AGUIRRE’s contract by one year. It’s a ‘one last chance’ deal for the Mexican manager to continue to rebuild the squad.

Speaking of Atletico Madrid, yesterday evening RADIO MARCA unofficially announced that JOSE ANTONIO REYES is set to join the club at the end of the week. As a supporter of the club, I cannot understand this at all. REYES is a decent player, but he will receive a negative welcome by the Atleti faithful after his earlier declarations of wishing to stay at Real Madrid (followed by making it painfully obvious that he simply wishes to stay in Spain and play for just about any Liga club that’ll have him). To add salt to the wound, he was the one who secured victory for Real Madrid. I can only imagine that the decision– IF IT IS TRUE– was made well before Real Madrid’s final game.
