Atletico Madrid coach Javier Aguirre admits he's cock-a-hoop over a reunion with his former Osasuna protege Raul Garcia.

"I guaranteed he would be a success to the directors here," said Aguirre. "With this one, we're not mistaken, I said to them. Not only on the field, but outside the ground. It seems like he has been playing football for 30 years.

"I knew him as a child and I recognised his talent, I knew that he was going to be footballer."
