Atletico Madrid fullback Luis Filipe: Many lies written about me

Luis Filipe insists he's fully committed to Atletico Madrid.

After defeat to Celta Vigo yesterday, the fullback addressed his on-off move to PSG over the summer.

"PSG? Three weeks ago, this situation emerged, but I immediately reiterated to my leaders that I did not want to leave," said Filipe.

"I have never insisted on joining PSG, and many lies have been written about me."

Despite Filipe's claims, Atletico coach Diego Simeone conceded at the time that the veteran was keen to move to Paris before last week's transfer deadline.
