Filipe Luis has said he is “proud of this club” for bringing striker Diego Costa back from Chelsea.
“Wherever he has gone he has made history, and he arrives ready to work, fight and make us better. We are going to grow. I’m delighted that my friend is coming here.”
“It’s very important that he is here and he has chosen Atletico Madrid. He had a thousand offers, and he has chosen an Atletico that doesn’t stop growing.
“He is going to do great, and I don’t doubt that it will be the same Diego as always.”
Midfielder Koke added: “We know how much he gave when he was here. He is a very important player in football, we know how he plays, and he will give us a lot.
“Each time I would pass the ball to him it would almost be a goal, and that is why I’m delighted like everyone in the team.”
