In the best moment since his arrival at Atlético de Madrid, Samuel Lino was slowed down by a knee injury. Already recovered, the Brazilian returned to the starting lineup in Colchonero’s 1-0 victory against Mallorca on matchday 14 of LaLiga 2023-24.

Again on the left lane, the former Valencia player once again had an outstanding performance, with imbalance and arrival to the area. Diego Simeone recognized his constant evolution in the Spanish capital, although he clarified that he would like to see him have more impact in the final meters.

Simeone wants more goals from Samuel Lino

“Samu Lino is growing day by day. We need more from him, we need a goal. We demand this from him because he has it,” explained the Argentine coach in dialogue with Movistar+ .

“He had an opportunity in the first half to finish faster and he didn’t, he lost some time and he can’t allow that. He and Riquelme give us speed and dynamics and this is very good.”

Samuel Lino had the chance to return to the starting eleven thanks to Rodrigo Riquelme’s recent activity with the Spanish team, so it remains to be seen if he remains in the team for the next duel. Atleti will return to the ring this Tuesday, November 28, when they visit Feyenoord for the UEFA Champions League.
