Atletico Madrid signing Cata Diaz happy to replace Dominguez

New Atletico Madrid signing Cata Diaz is happy to fill the void left by Alvaro Dominguez.

Fans' favourite Dominguez is headed to Borussia Monchengladbach for £8million.

Diaz told AS: "He (Dominguez) has played here, come through the academy and is important for the club but I have come here to do my bit and I have the same pressure all players have when they arrive at a new club. I don't think that my coming here and Dominguez leaving will bring me more pressure than the others.

"When a team like Atletico became interested in me I wasn't in any doubt. I am arriving with a lot of desire and happiness. I want to demonstrate that on the pitch because with words I can't say very much. I hope it will be a good year for the team."
