Juanfran urges Atletico Madrid to rediscover defensive approach

Former Atletico Madrid defender Juanfran can see the current team still having another gear in them this season.

Juanfran believes the LaLiga title holders can still take their game to another level.

He said, "We are starting the games badly but fixing them. We don't have to give so many chances. If something has characterised us, it is that in the first-halves we controlled the games.

"Leaving one (of the tridente) on the bench ... I see Correa on the bench and it bothers me. In my time there weren't as many replacements as now. It's one of the best squads I've seen."

Juanfran added: "They need to find the identity as last year as what was with that line of five. This year we are more hesitant. We must trust the coach."
