thumbnail Hello,

The 58 year old trainer has said that he is awaiting the return of Diego back to Wolfsburg after the end of his loan spell at Atletico Madrid despite the bust-up between the pair.

Wolfsburg coach Felix Magath has said he expects to see Diego back at the Volkswagen Arena next season.

The German trainer had earlier said on Friday that the club's supporters can look forward to the Brazilian's return from Atletico Madrid at the end of his loan deal.

The 27 year old who joined the German club in a 15.5 million deal from Juventus, played a key part in Atletico's Europa League final victory over Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday, scoring in the 3-0 win in Bucharest.

Despite a public bust-up between the pair, when Diego refused to sit on the bench against Hoffenheim last season leaving Die Wolfe with only six substitutes, Magath is ready to see the midfielder return to Wolfsburg.

"[Diego] is contracted to us from July 1. At the moment, we await his return to training. We are waiting." the 58 year old was quoted as saying by Globo Esporte.

Magath had previously said on Friday: "We have seen how valuable he can be as a player when he brings all of his skills to the team. So, our fans can look forward to that [next season]"

Wolfsburg finished the 2011-12 Bundesliga season in eighth place. Diego, meanwhile, plays his final game for Diego Simeone's side against Villarreal on Sunday evening.
