Marcos Llorente’s trajectory at Atletico Madrid has been impressive this season, as Diego Simeone has managed to get back into super form a purchase that brought discussion, but now he is one of the best midfielders in Europe.
The Argentine coach experimented with Llorente’s position a year ago and then came the Truck League match against Liverpool, which made the Real Madrid academy player one of the key players in the squad.
A completely new footballer was born in March last year, as Simeone continued to try Llorente in almost all midfield and attack positions.
Despite his skill and ability to play as a second striker, Llorente has excelled this season as a right midfielder.
The 25-year-old’s numbers stand out and have ranked him among the best in his position across Europe.
Llorente has already participated in a total of 13 goals, having scored seven and assisted six.
Better like him are just Joshua Kimmich (four goals and 11 assists) and Kevin De Bruyne (two goals and 13 assists).
Meanwhile, only Carlos Soler (seven goals and five assists) and Sergio Canales (eight goals and four assists) can boast of their numbers being close to Llorente in La Liga.
However, the Valencia midfielder has scored six of his seven goals from the penalty spot, and that of Real Betis also scored three penalties. /Telegraph/
