Rincon: Elias will be great for Atletico Madrid pair Aguero, Forlan

Former Real Madrid striker Freddy Rincon is backing Elias to be a star with Atletico Madrid.

Rincon now works as a coach with Corinthians, which have accepted a bid from Atletico for Elias, and it was he who converted the player from a striker into an attacking midfielder.

He said: "This is a player who shines across competitions and fights in every game. Spain is best suited to his qualities. There the football is more technical, more ball possession and he will do very well.

"Elias can be a great foil for Sergio Ageuro and Diego Forlan."
