Filipe Luis: I Want To Retire At Atletico

share on:

Filipe Luis has expressed his desire to spend the rest of his playing career at the Vicente Calderon, hoping to retire at the club.

The Brazilian defender has resumed a second spell at the club after spending last season at Chelsea, but failing to make an impact on the first team as Chelsea won the league.

Filipe moved back to Atletico Madrid last month, and hopes it is the last move of his career.

“I hope I can retire at Atletico Madrid,” said the 30-year-old after featuring in the 2-0 friendly victory over Real Sociedad on Saturday.

Antoine Griezmann scored against his former club to add to a Markel Bergara own goal and Filipe said his adaptation to life back in the side has been a swift one after rekindling his partnership down the left with Koke.

“The year we won the league Koke always played for me,” the Brazil international explained. “I know every move and I know how he plays.

“The most important is the defensive work Koke does, which makes me my job easier.”

On being reunited with Atletico boss Diego Simeone, he added: “We have spent many years together and he will not need to tell me many things.

“I know his ideas because we started together at Atletico.”
