Mista, Costinha frozen out at Atletico Madrid

Mista and Costinha are on their way out of Atletico Madrid.

Both players were left out of Javier Aguirre's squad for tonight's UEFA Cup clash with Vojvodina.

Costinha has already met with his agent, Jorge Mendes, this week about his situation and is expected to return to Portugal. Meanwhile, Mista is reluctant to leave Atletico, but knows he's on the outer.

Indeed, Aguirre was spotted at training this week lambasting the striker for a challenge on Pablo Ibanez and was later seen working away from the first team squad.
