Tue 10 November 2020 | 11:59

The Spanish captain of Atletico Madrid reflected on the presence of Suarez on the team and possible competition for Barcelona players.

Luis Suarez

who joined

Atletico Madrid

coming from

Barcelona

after being let go of by Koeman was praised by

Koke

saying that he fits the team well. So far the Uruguayan had six appearances in LaLiga scoring five goals and giving one assist.  Atelti who are third on the table with two less games played have been going unbeaten thanks to Suarez.

"A radical change has hit us in [our] game," Koke told Cadena Ser. "[Having Suarez] leaves Joao, Correa and Llorente free in some situations. He has fit us like a glove."

Koke was also asked about the limited time Suarez had with the currently injured

Diego Costa

saying: "They are two great forwards and they have to adapt together. The team is playing well and has more solutions in attack."

When the Spanish midfielder was asked about the potential return of

Griezmann

and his recent performance he stated: "I was very surprised to see a player of the stature of Griezmann [not play until] the 90th minute in the last duel in which we faced Barca,"

"I think now he would have a lot of competition here."

Koke also said that even

Messi

would have a competition on Atelti’s squad adding further about his happiness regarding the flourishing of

Llorente

.

"I'm happy for him because at first he didn't have a good time by not playing, but all work has its reward. Those that last year had fewer minutes have more this season."
