According to sources in the Spanish media, Atlético defender Tomas Ujfalusi was in Istanbul on Sunday where he agreed terms with Galatasaray to join the Turkish outfit next season. AS reports the announcement will be made official tomorrow. According to MARCA, Atleti is set to receive €2m for the former Czech international.
Atlético right back Tomas Ujfalusi, speaking to Italian radio network Sportiva, admitted he and team-mates have known for some time now that striker Sergio Agüero planned to leave Atleti this summer. While Kun continues to insist he has not chosen his next team yet, the former Czech international revealed what Rojiblanco supporters would consider their worst nightmare: that their once-dearly beloved Kun has been seduced by the dark side.
Atlético resorted to their old ways yet again by turning in back-to-back stinkers in just a span of four days, with losses to Málaga and Racing Santander. Though los Rojiblancos still have a solid chance of securing a Europa League berth for next season, they felt it necessary to put their fans through the torture chamber one last time for the final stage of the current campaign.
Last night we caught a glimpse at ‘what could’ve been’ with an uplifting victory over our once direct rivals Villarreal. Perhaps the triumph was somewhat bittersweet as many fans will likely wonder where this sensational team has been hiding all season long. Check out our notes and quotes from this magical evening at the Calderón.
When Kun scored the second goal to complete the unlikely comeback against Real Sociedad, Atlético manager Quique Sánchez Flores could hardly contain his euphoria. The cameras focussed in on our tactician who was running down the sideline beaming with delight. After the match, Quique told reporters that he was “very happy with the win because we never lost faith.”
