Luis Garcia: Atletico Madrid always my first choice

Luis Garcia insists Atletico Madrid was always his first-choice as he considered a return to Spain during last season.

The former Liverpool midfielder said: "Atletico was always my priority should I have returned to Spain. They were the team that was always on my mind.

"The other day the fans gave me a standing ovation for five minutes. It was wonderful.

"I want to do something important in the history of this club."

He added: "Atletico have improved a lot on last season. There's a lot of quality in midfield and in defence. We now have players who do not commit errors."
