Cagliari defender Diego Godin spoke about a tiring fight for safety in Serie A this term. ‘It generates depression, sadness and lack of trust’.
The Rossoblu were struggling for most of the season but eventually turned things around under Leonardo Semplici.
Godin admitted it has been a difficult season and stressed it’s very tough to spend a season in the relegation battle.
“I didn’t fight for safety since the season at Cerro,” Godin told Punto Penal. “It generates depression, sadness and lack of trust.”
The Uruguayan defender arrived from Inter ahead of the season and revealed CA Talleres coach Alexander Medina wants him to return to his homeland.
“Cacique Medina has called me many times to convince me to go to Talleres,” Godin said.
Atletico Madrid celebrated winning La Liga this term and the former player also spoke about his affection to the Colchoneros.
“[Diego] Simeone wrote me yesterday to thank me for the feeling we left at the club. I feel part of that family. Atletico Madrid is like Uruguay, a rebel fighting against the great powers,” Godin added.
“If Atletico want to continue winning titles, I recommend that they continue to buy Uruguayan players.”
