“It’s always the goal of any player to return to the national team,” he said. “One works hard for things like this and it hurts to watch the games on TV – one of the few things that I am missing is winning with Spain. It wasn’t hard to return.
“You always have a team from when you were little, and I am and will always be from Atlético. I want it to be very clear that I am grateful to Atleti. I have a very good relationship with Cholo and I wish him all the best – you never know if we will meet again. I don’t know if I will ever wear the Atlético shirt again. Right now I’m very well and calm, but you never know.
“I hope Atleti can win the league. They have to fight for it and for every game, and they are playing very well. I see them as being better than Madrid and Barça.”
