Diego Simeone has revealed that Atletico Madrid’s resolve to sign a player in January is now increased after Tiago injury.
Atletico Madrid believe that Tiago will be out for at least three months after suffering a broken leg.
And this has spurred Simeone to back buying players in January.
“We are always open to any situation when the winter transfer window comes,” Simeone said.
“It will not be an exception now, more so due to the absence of a player like Tiago.”
“Clearly, it’s hard to find another Tiago. At 34 years old there is experience that no-one has at 26 or 27,” he said.
“We will work with the guys we have in that position: Koke, Saul, [Matias] Kranevitter, Gabi.
“We will work to see who does better.”
