Correa accepts the total challenge

The arrival of Griezmann to Atlético was the bomb of the market closure and now it is Simeone, his great supporter, who has to manage everything he has in his hands. The general feeling before the 31st was that the team had a powerful attack … and now the Frenchman joins. The starting forward was the one formed by Luis Suárez and Correa, that has grown strong since spring. But after the break, the Argentine will feel the strong pressure of Griezmann and João Félix for taking over his position. The competition is tremendous.

Correa will like more or less among the fans than his forward partners, but the season has started with stripes and goals. The first was won in the final stretch of the last League, for which it ended up being decisive. And it has started this with three goals and one assist in three days.

In this course, and despite starting the preseason with the laggards, just two weeks before the debut in Vigo, he has also started in all three games. Always available.

Simeone’s blessed dilemma

The Argentine is on a roll, João Félix is ​​a bet for the present and the future and Griezmann is the star signing. And there is Cunha too. To the 10 he is not afraid of challenges and this will be the next. And probably the most difficult yet. Last season he already surpassed the Portuguese in the coach’s plans and now starts on pole. From the club they point out that with so many games (there are seven in the League and Champions League in three weeks), the rotations will be necessary and there will be minutes for everyone.
