Diego: Simeone convinced me about Atletico Madrid return

Diego Ribas is delighted with his return to Atletico Madrid.

The midfielder admits the chance to work again for coach Diego Simeone was a big influence.

"Simeone played a vital role. I have a fantastic relationship with him. He's the best coach I've worked with. He helped me a lot as a player and a person [in Diego's previous stint at Atlético] and I'm sure the faith he has in me makes the difference when I have to make decisions," said the Brazilian.

"Now it's finally happened, perhaps because I am nearing the end of my contract [with Wolfsburg]. It was the right time to come back and now I have to enjoy it to the max."
