Our captain Antonio López has been talking to the press today and confirmed that Atlético are now back in training and are focused on preparing for the UEFA Super Cup against Inter.
Speaking after a sponsorship extension was agreed between the club and Finnish gambling company Paf, López told journalists in the VIP room at the Calderon that all of the players were training well, in good fitness and ready for the challenge.
“We’re very excited about playing for the Super Cup. Let’s see if we can bring it home!”
Every year, the winner of the UEFA Champions League takes on the winner of the Europa League in a showpiece event before the start of the season.
Atlético take on Inter in the UEFA Super Cup on 27th August in Monaco, in what will be the first competitive meeting between the two clubs in their history.
