Atletico Madrid: Vitolo’s audition ahead of next season
Atletico Madrid One and a half months to be evaluated
With seven games to go until the end of the season, Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone will have the opportunity to evaluate Vitolo ahead of the next LaLiga Santander campaign.
Following his arrival at the club, the Spaniard has barely managed to feature in 46 games – 18 as a starter – in 16 months.
Simeone pushed for his transfer to Los Rojiblancos, but Vitolo has struggled to get playing time due to various injuries throughout his spell at the club.
Thomas Lemar and Angel Correa have had more opportunities that the former Sevilla winger this season, who will have one and a half months to prove himself to his coach.
Although the 29-year-old did not feature in the game against Barcelona, the next seven games may be crucial in regards to his future.
The Argentine tactician is fond of his player’s skills, but it remains unclear whether his will entrust him with a spot in next season’s squad.
