Enrique Cerezo was delighted to welcome Lemar to his new home, the Wanda Metropolitano.
"At just 22 years old, he's already shown his quality and talent at Monaco, which brought him to the French National Team. Just a few weeks ago, they won the World Cup in Russia," Cerezo said. "Thomas, we know that your teammates and friends Antoine Greiezmann and Lucas Herández have already told you what it means to defend this red and white shirt. We also know how excited you are to come to Atlético de Madrid and we're sure your arrival will help us reach our goals."
Lemar thanked the president for his kind words and spoke about what it means for him to join Atleti.
"Thank you, Mr. president. I'm very happy to be here. I really want to meet all my new teammates. I've met a few, but I want to meet them all," he said. "I also really want to meet the fans at the Wanda Metropolitano."
Our newest player will wear the number '11' and is excited to give it his all for our team.
"Antoine and Lucas have told me lots about the club. I’m very happy with the decision I made," Lemar continued. "I know this team demands hard work and I'll give it my all for the team. If I need to run more, I'll do it without a problem."
