Forlan: Atletico Madrid a sleeping giant

Diego Forlan has described Atletico Madrid as a "sleeping giant"

The Uruguay international striker is in his first season at the Vicente Calderon and said: "Atletico is a big club with a tremendous passion and all this is very nice. It is a sleeping giant that has long been unable to get good results.

"On the 20th of January we receive Real Madrid at the Vicente Calderon and it will be a classic. A good result is going to help us in the search for a place to play in the Champions League."
