Assuncao not satisfied after Atletico Madrid debut

New Atletico Madrid signing Paulo Assuncao impressed on debut in yesterday's friendly against Mexico's Puebla.

Assuncao has arrived from Porto, which are taking his case to FIFA after the midfielder bought out the remaining two years of his contract.

After Puebla's 1-0 victory, Assuncao said: "I've only had three days training with the team and it is clear that we must improve a lot. I've been on vacation for 45 days and ended up a little tired.

"The most important thing at the moment is to acquire the physical fitness, which I will do so shortly."
