'I didn't hesitate in joining Atletico' - Siqueira

The left-back joined the Spanish champions from Granada on Wednesday and says he didn't even take a second to think about joining the club

Guilherme Siqueira revealed that he wasted no time in deciding to join Atletico Madrid after finalising his move on Wednesday.

The Spanish champions have struck a deal with Granada for the left-back, who agreed a four-year contract at Vicente Calderon last week and has now been unveiled in the capital after passing his medical. 

The 28-year-old, who spent last season on loan at Europa League finalists Benfica, says he didn't hesitate to accept Atletico's offer and hopes the success they achieved this season can be sustained for a long period of time.

"Today is an unforgettable day. I'm happy and excited," he said at his unveiling. "It is an important day because I can already say that I am at the Liga champions.

"Of course. That's what we're working towards. We don't speak about a season here, but a cycle." 

The defender added that he is looking forward to joining the team and praised coach Diego Simeone for the work he has done with the club.

"This Atletico team is impressive, watching the team is a pleasure. One of the strengths of this group is physical fitness. Atleti are stronger at the latter stages of the league campaign than others.

"Any player would want to be part of this group, it did not take a second to decide once I knew they were interested."

"The boss has been doing an amazing job. Watching Atletico play is a joy. The project here is about results. Any footballer would want to be a part of this club.

"I haven't spoken to him yet, let him enjoy his holidays, but there's not much to say, you can see what Atleti are about. I really like the idea of playing each game as if it were your last. I hope to settle in as quickly as possible."
