Ship him out.

Posted by atleti on July 29, 2007

Today, during a training session, Portuguse midfielder Costinha punched Jacobo Ynclán in the face after the 20 year old canterano dangerously tackled him. The fight was broken up by a few players, judging by the photo, Brasilian Diego Costa.  

It just so happens that 50 or so Atleti supporters were watching the training when the incident occurred. Many began chanting ‘Dedicate a jugar al fútbol!’ to Costinha, who is not a fan favourite and has fallen down the pecking order. Ship him out now.

Atleti will have a day of rest tomorrow (Monday), before traveling to Amsterdam on Tuesday to continue their preparations for the Amsterdam Tournament, which I have discussed here. Their first game will be against Dutch giants, Ajax.

In other news, there’s an outrageous rumour circulating in the Spanish press that Jose Antonio Reyes– the on loan Arsenal player at Re*l M*drid, the one who lead them to league glory in 06/07– is on his way to becoming a rojiblanco. I won’t discuss this  at this moment because I have extremely mixed feelings on it. It’s better to wait and see if this is true or false, anyway!

Stay tuned.
