LaLiga Santander: Gabi: Atletico Madrid should give Godin three more years because he deserves it
LaLiga Santander Could leave at the end of the season
Diego Godin is likely to leave Atletico Madrid at the end of his contract in June but Gabi Fernandez believes the club should offer the Uruguayan a three-year deal to satisfy his wishes, despite his advancing years.
Atleti are reluctant to meet his requests given the defender is now 32, yet his former teammate and ex-club captain has called on those in charge to give him what he wants.
“Every effort the club makes is going to be minimal compared to what Diego means,” Gabi said to MARCA.
“I was in his situation, but I would offer him three years because he deserves it.
“Godin continues to perform and has earned respect.
“They should renew his contract even if it means setting a precedent.”
The pair have had a close relationship for many years now and the former captain knows it is Godin‘s dream to end his career with Atletico.
