Atletico Madrid coach Simeone: I treat Torres fairly; Vrsaljko and Liverpool...?

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone insists he's treated Fernando Torres fairly this season.

The veteran striker, who has battled to earn a start under Simeone, proved the matchwinner against Alaves this weekend.

"I haven't treated Torres unfairly," said Simeone.

"I give him the time that I think the team needs. I do not think about people, I think about the team and that is why the team is where it is."

Simeone also insisted he was counting on Sime Vrsaljko, despite rumours linking him with Liverpool and Napoli.

"It is a subject very similar to the previous question. He was not playing, he's very good, it's his moment and he made the goal with centres in Sevilla and now. All the players that I have at my disposal until the last day are mine and I hope that nobody leaves. That's clear."
