"Chicharito? Anything’s possible up until deadline day"
The Atlético coach said he was unaware that Alejandro Sabella had left his post with Argentina: “I’m focused only on Atleti,” he told reporters.
Atlético de Madrid coach Diego Simeone spoke to the media on the eve of his team’s meeting with Club América at the Azteca stadium – the Rojiblancos third outing of the pre-season.
Tomorrow’s match: “We’re all very proud to take part in a game which will be played at a stadium with so much history attached to it”.
Argentina national team: “I didn’t know that Sabella had quit; he guided the team well in Brazil. The Argentina job has always attracted me but nobody has spoken to me about it. Right now I am focussing solely on Atlético and I am completely committed to our project”.
Chances of landing Chicharito: “The technical department are handling it. Like any other player who we are interested in, Hernández has a chance of arriving before the transfer window closes”.
