He's here! Thomas Lemar is in Madrid and ready to get started as an Atlético. Shortly upon arriving, he spoke to us about his sensations.
"I'm very happy to be in Madrid and I can't wait to meet my teammates," he said. "I want this [chapter] to start in the best possible manner. I can't wait to start."
Lemar said Antoine Griezmann and Lucas Hernández' words helped him make his decision.
"Atleti have been interested in me for quite some time and after what Antoine and Lucas told me, I really wanted to come."
Our new Frenchman said the decision to come to Atleti was an easy one.
"I chose Atleti because I like the club and I've been following the team for a while," he continued. "Once the opportunity arose, it didn't take long for me to make my decision"
