Saul Niguez has opened up about his move from Atletico Madrid to Chelsea. He admitted that he was annoyed with the coach Diego Simeone for not giving the role according to the original position.
Saul Niguez is loaned to Chelsea on the deadline of the 2021 summer transfer market. Reportedly there is no permanent purchase clause, but if it is satisfactory, it is possible that the Blues will make him permanent.
In a talk session with Ibai Llanos via Twitch, Saul explained his relationship with Diego Simeone. He realized moving to Chelsea could be the best way out.
“I spoke with Diego Simeone, I said that in these three seasons I have always played in different positions. I know I owe him a debt, but it seems that he is selfish and feels he belongs to this club,” said Saul Niguez.

“I’m stuck in a position that is not ideal. The option to move to Chelsea is so I can get out of my comfort zone, a challenge that I have to take,” said Saul again.
During the last 2-3 seasons at Atletico Madrid , Saul Niguez played as a defensive midfielder. In fact, according to him, he is more comfortable playing the role of a playmaker.
It’s hard to leave Atletico Madrid
Saul may not stay longer at Chelsea. He loves Atletico Madrid because he has had a career since he was 13 years old.
“I have asked Simeone and Miguel Angel to return to their original position. I understand it is his decision,” added Saul.
“I have been at this club since the age of 13, and moving to another club is very difficult. I am willing to improve my abilities, especially with a new role and position. So I will try that at Chelsea, that is my goal,” he said again.
Completing the Squad
Chelsea do want to have a more complete and solid squad this season. Understandably, the Blues, who are also the defending champions of the Champions League, want to target other champion targets, such as the Premier League, while still trying to defend the title in Europe.
“We welcome Saul to the club and believe he completes the squad we have as we will be competing in five different competitions this season,” Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said on the club’s official website.
