Atlético head out to Huelva Friday to face off against Recreativo for the Trofeo Colombino. The friendly, Atleti’s final test of the pre-season before the next round of Europa League and la Liga get underway, is scheduled to kick-off at 22:00 CET.
A large part of being an Atletico fan means being left devastated, disappointed and angry every other week, but every once in a while we experience that satisfying redemption that justifies all of our heartache and pain. In an unforgettable 2010, we were very fortunate to witness red and white glory on several occasions, and we were reminded why we are what we are: die-hard Rojiblancos.
Ibrahima looks set to follow team-mate Leandro Cabrera to Recreativo Huelva. An agreement was reached with the Andalusian side yesterday, however, the young forward has requested additional time to review other options on the table for him. Several clubs from Romania have shown interest, as well as Sporting Gijón.
Leandro Cabrera won’t be wearing the red-and-white shirt this season after Recreativo managed to wrap up a deal that will see him spend the season on loan with them. The player will be officially presented on Monday, but could make a debut for his new club this Saturday against Badajoz.
