David De Gea Admits Aguero Is A Key Player

Atletico Madrid’s young goalkeeper David de Gea has confessed that colleague Sergio Aguero is a key player for the club, and hopes the Argentine striker returns to action soon.

The 22-year-old has struggled for fitness this season after suffering a knee injury in the victory over Athletic Bilbao at the beginning of September, and he remains a doubt for the match versus Getafe on Saturday evening.

Speaking in a press conference this afternoon, the Spanish U-21 shot-stopper conceded that the team are a different proposition without their talismanic attacker.

“There is no denying that Aguero is a key player for us. However, we are playing well without him. We must focus on defeating Getafe. It is important to get the three points and even more so because we are at home.”

De Gea also commented on the Under 21 squad’s 3-0 win over Croatia in their European Championship play-off on Tuesday which sends them comfortably through 4-1 on aggregate.

“The most important thing was to qualify. We went out to win and we are happy, because it was a tough match and they were a very physical team. We had a great performance and the 3-0 score-line showed it.”

With regards to potentially receiving a call-up to the full squad, the 19-year-old confessed, “What [Vicente] Del Bosque said gives me great encouragement, but I’m focused on the Under-21’s and I prefer to take things step by step.”

Simao also discussed his current contract negotiations, which have yet to be resolved, despite colleagues such as Jose Antonio Reyes, Tomas Ujfalusi and Paulo Assuncao all recently committing their futures to the club.

He stated: “This depends on the club. They spoke to my agent, and I think if there is interest on both sides we will reach an agreement. I can be happy with what I have done here. I do not play feeling like it is my last year.

“I am committed to the group, and I am happy that things are going well.” Source: Goal
