Guillherme Siqueira was one of the new players in the match against Numancia. The Brazilian said, "I'm happy to wear Atlético’s shirt for the first time. It is a pre-season game and we know that we are not at our best level yet, but they’re fixtures where we can physically improve and adapt to the team. I'm happy to have made my debut with Atlético’s shirt".
Regarding the work balance of these two weeks, he said, "It’s good and positive. The work we’re doing is very good and very strong to achieve the best physical condition. What we've done these past two weeks will allow us to face the pre-season matches and after those, the first official one of Spain’s Super Cup”.
This Friday, the team travels to play two matches in the EuroAmerican Cup. The Brazilian said, "We know the importance of wearing Atleti’s shirt, the large amount of people who see and follow us. Since I'm Brazilian, I'm happy to be able to play in my continent and represent Atlético and my country in this Cup".
The left-back noted, "It’s the first friendly match and we cannot draw any conclusions because our legs are heavy from the work done in the Ángeles of San Rafael. They are fixtures that get you in the rhythm. You have to improve the physical and technical level to be at your best when you start the season".
