Atletico Madrid coach Simeone: We need Lucas here

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone insists he's counting on Lucas Hernandez for the remainder of this season.

The defender is a confirmed target for Bayern Munich, while he is also being linked with Manchester United and Manchester City.

But ahead of today's win over Levante, Simeone said: "He's part of the group and we'll decide the morning of the match.

"He is very good, he is a strong guy and I hope he will come back as he left when he had to go out against Alavés.

"He is a very important player for us, he gives us depth on the left side when he plays this role and we need him."
