Diego Simeone has acknowledged that Fernando Torres’ hopes of an Atletico Madrid contract renewal “depend on results” after scoring twice in Saturday’s 2-0 defeat of Leganes.
Torres produced only his fifth LaLiga commence from the season for the visit of Atletico’s relegation-threatened neighbours, entering Simeone’s XI ahead of Kevin Gameiro.
Plus the striker repaid that faith having a solid display, scoring the opening aim having a clever finish on the rebound after Iago Herrerin had kept out Antoine Griezmann’s penalty – which Torres won.
He then wrapped factors up just immediately after the break with an additional very good objective made by Angel Correa’s throughball and Simeone was full of praise afterwards, although he gave no assurances that the 32-year-old’s contract will probably be extended beyond its present expiry date at the end of June.
“That normally depends upon the club, the coach, and all of that depends on the results,” Simeone told reporters.
“He’s had four great days and that may be well observed, especially because of the strength with which he has been fighting.
“Despite not playing he has trained well and which has constantly been his greatest virtue. Hopefully he can continue like this.”
One particular player whose functionality was not up to scratch was Saul Niguez, with all the midfielder withdrawn at half-time and Simeone publicly singled him out.
“I believed he was not getting a fantastic game,” Simeone said. “That 1-0 wasn’t adequate and I thought that with Correa among lines we could do more damage. It [the change] came off perfectly, which I welcome.”
