Vitolo: I want to show that I can be a champion

Atletico’s winger Madrid Vitolo escorted coach Diego Simeone at a press conference before the Europa League match against Copenhagen. She shared her impressions of her new team, which she joined after New Year’s Eve.

For the first months in the team
I like it very much, the teammates have welcomed me very well. I am pleased with how they accepted me and expect to make a strong end to the campaign.

About the role in the team
Everyone wants to play. Whenever the coach gives me a chance to play, I will take advantage of the minutes to convince him that I can be among the 11 champions. I have the desire to always improve and grow as a footballer.

About the adaptation
I came to be an important part of the team and play. It is good that we all have the ambition to want more. What am I missing? Ask the coach. I try to learn from him and do the job well.

For the World Cup
It is clear that everyone wants to play well in his team and play a lot of minutes in the coming world, because it is something very big, which you dream of since a small one. I hope to take part in this World Cup because it will be spectacular.

The hard way
The lead is that Diego Kosta was already at Atletico and knew what the coach expected him to do. I am new and do not know how the mentor works tactically. I’m well trained and learning from his requirements. There are still many games left so I want to win a place in the team and be an important player.

About expectations in training
At first, the intensity is very high. Every player quickly and easily deals with this when they are with the group. Expectations at Atletico are very high. We, the footballers, are ready and the training is getting used to. I’m 100% ready.
