Saúl and Giménez celebrate against Eibar

Saúl and Giménez taking lead roles for youthful Atleti

When Atlético Madrid beat Eibar 3-1 this past Saturday, they did so with the average age in the starting XI being roughly 23 years-old.

Although Fernando Torres’ 100th career goal stole the headlines on the day, the game solidified the fact that José Giménez and Saúl Ñíguez are showing fans of los Rojiblancos that the future’s looking bright.

Player Of The Month – December

For the high standards set by Diego Simeone so far at Atlético, December was a fairly up and down month. Most of the news was dominated by the fallout from violence after the Deportivo game at the end of the previous month and Frente Atlético’s ban.

On the pitch however, we saw the birth of a new star – a 19 year-old from Uruguay by the name of José Maria Giménez, who scoops our award for best player over the last calendar month.
