Coupet: Atletico Madrid charmed us

Former Lyon goalkeeper Gregory Coupet admits Atletico Madrid officials convinced him to reject a move to England in preference to Spain.

"In principle I wanted to go to a British country so that my children could learn English," said Coupet. "But what happened was that talks with the leaders of Atletico were so pleasant that I did not want to look further, I knew that this was the perfect opportunity.

"My wife was with me for our first meeting in Madrid and also loved the idea."
