Atlético unveiled their summer signing Léo Baptistão on Friday during the Volkswagen Race Tour at the Circuito del Jarama in Madrid.
In attendance were club president Enrique Cerezo, sporting director José Luis Pérez Caminero and club legend Luís Pereira.
“Today is an important day for me. I’m very excited to have signed for Atlético Madrid. It’s a dream to play for a big club and now it’s a reality,” a happy Léo said at his presentation.
The 20-year-old former Rayo player proceeded to explain why he was unconcerned about the pressure of being a Rojiblanco and what kind of player he was.
“I don’t think about having pressure. I’m young and I have to learn at this club where there are very good players and a manager who knows a lot about football,” he said.
“I can play up front, as a winger, behind the forward or as the forward. I see myself as an ordinary player with certain technical qualities and a long and wide range.”
Atlético president Cerezo said Léo was “one of the most sought after players by clubs both in Spain and abroad” and “a player with a great future and above all, great potential,” before wishing him “lots of success” in his “new home.”
