Atlético de Madrid defender Filipe Luís hails capture of Metalist Kharkiv midfielder José Sosa
Atlético de Madrid defender Filipe Luís has hailed the capture of Metalist Kharkiv midfielder José Sosa.
The 28 year-old was signed on a six-month loan deal from the Ukrainian Premier League side on 1st January.
Filipe insists everyone at Atlético is aware of Sosa’s quality and believes the Argentina international will benefit from having already worked with manager Diego Simeone at Estudiantes de La Plata.
“He is a great player. We know him and have seen him play,” he said, as reported by Football Espana.
“An addition to the squad always helps because the season is long and there are many games.
“Simeone has already worked with him and he certainly brings much to us.”
Atlético de Madrid are currently joint of La Liga alongside Barcelona with 46 points. They face Málaga next on Saturday.
