Simeone: 'Godin is an idol'

Cagliari forward Giovanni Simeone says Diego Godin’s arrival from Inter makes him ‘enthusiastic’ and looks forward to play with the Uruguayan.

The Uruguayan defender is expected to complete his move to the Rossoblu today and the Rossoblu forward, and son of Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone, looks forward to play with one of his heroes.

“An idol for all Atletico fans, he’s a symbol for us fans. He left his soul there,” Simeone told Radiolina. “He leaves something at Inter too.

“He has had an important career and is a player who leaves everything on the pitch. I’m glad he will come here.

“It makes me enthusiastic and gives me the desire to fight on the pitch with him. When I was little, I saw him on the pitch at Atletico, now we will play together and fight together."
