WATCH: Jan Oblak says Atletico Madrid fans can be excited about new signings

Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak says they go into the new season full of confidence.

Despite losing mainstays like Antoine Griezmann (Barcelona), Lucas Hernandez (Bayern Munich) and Diego Godin (Inter Milan), there's a lot of excitement around Atleti's incoming signings, including Joao Felix and Kieran Trippier.

Oblak declared, “A lot of new players have arrived and some players who did great things for the club over many years have left. Our new teammates have come in with a lot of enthusiasm and dreams of achieving great things here. All of us that are here, including the new guys, will do all we can to achieve our goals this season.

“Obviously, we need time to get to know each other but the early signs are really good. They're players with a lot of quality, the quality you need to be here. They look really sharp and keen in training, really willing to learn, to see what the coach wants from them.

"That's the way to build a strong team, a solid team like we've always had. I'm sure we'll go far this season."
