Atletico Madrid Football Club have new manager with appoint Rueben Sanchez to lead the club to success in Europa League for next 2 seasons. Although manager is inexperienced and with a big club he believes he is man to make Atletico Champions and best club in Europe. The club are one of Spain's big four clubs and they look to compete well in Europa League this season, key players are the dynamic strikers of Antoine Griezmann and Fernando Torres both are big scorers and will score many goals for the club. Gabi, Koke and Carrasco will boss the midfield and be the engine for Atletico attacking football. The manager like 3-4-3 formation and Atletico likely to change and play this tactic, midfield will be key to passing game and driving the club forward. Fans will be wanting to get better of bitter rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona and if finish higher than those clubs everyone at Atletico will be delighted.
The season start badly for Atletico with a bad 4-1 defeat away in Italy at hands of AC Milan, Atletico never play very well and found the game very hard to get the result for travelling fans. Only player who played well was Fernando Torres who several club have made bids but Atletico trying to hold onto him, the midfield were very poor and manager Rueben was not happy with how they play. Madrid line up with a new look 3-4-3 formation but players not play to manager orders, and now hardwork on training ground needed for club to get better results.
The club are chasing some players and the manager looking to make strength as he has taken on a weak rated team and new players are needed to make the club big in Europe again. Next game manager Rueben will be looking for better result and better playing from his players, as the fans are very disappointed with club progress at moment.
Atletico Madrid win 3-1 at AS Monaco to move 4th in Europa League a good match and manager Rueben very happy that get points and goals from Griezmann and Torres did damage to Monaco. Atletico start to play good football and look to chase leaders Bayern Munchen, a good performance from team in Monaco game and team like playing manager´s style of football and attacking. The manager is chase new players, offer for Man City players Fernandinho and Alex Kolarov to boost Atletico team, club also in talks with Manchester United about buy Wayne Rooney with Antoine Griezmann go United but much talks to be happen by both clubs.
Manager happy with his team, and looking to bring young players into world class players, club want to develop Academy and build club into world class football club and made enquiries to UEFA for development plans at club. Now the team look to next match, the Madrid derby against Real Madrid a mass game for fans and players and match that manager Rueben want to win badly for fans and the points.
