Llorente excited playing for Simeone at Atletico Madrid

Marcos Llorente is excited to be playing for Diego Simeone at Atletico Madrid.

The former Real Madrid midfielder made the move last week.

"There's not much I can say [about Simeone] that you don't know already," Llorente said.

"He's a coach with a winning mentality and a great ability to get this across to his players.

"I love the idea of working with him. It was his character as much as the club's project that attracted me and I didn't think twice about coming."
