Atletico Madrid fullback Santiago Arias: I want to play more

Atletico Madrid right-back Santiago Arias insists he wants to stay.

However, the Colombia defender admits he wants to play more.

"It's an honour to have played 33 matches this season with Atletico Madrid in Spain," he told MARCA.

"Obviously I want to play more, but we will go step by step.

"I want to play here in Copa America and give what I can.

"I am focused on the national team and on having a good Copa America tournament.

"Later we will see what will happen with Atletico Madrid.

"Now I have a contract with Atletico and I have to wait to see what the club says."
