Simeone ‘proud’ of departing quartet as Atletico prepare for new chapter

Atleti potentially said farewell to four long-serving players in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Levante but their head coach is excited about the future

Diego Simeone was “proud” of Atletico Madrid’s departing players as he all but confirmed the end-of-season exits of full-backs Filipe Luis and Juanfran.

Atletico striker Antoine Griezmann had already confirmed on Tuesday that he intends to leave the Wanda Metropolitano ahead of next season amid rumoured interest from La Liga rivals Barcelona.

Diego Godin is also on his way out, with Inter expected to be his next destination, while Filipe Luis and Juanfran do not appear likely to sign new contracts.
