Simeone includes Luis Suarez and Torreira in CL squad, omits Manu Sanchez
Being a first team player is no guarantee of playing for Atletico Madrid. That is what has happened to Manu Sanchez, who has been left out of the Champions League squad.
Manu Sanchez has become Renan Lodi's replacement on the left hand side. However, the Atletico man was not among the men chosen by Simeone to try and get the first Champions League trophy.
However, the left back could be in at the last minute though. The thing is Atletico Madrid have still not given their B team list for the season.
Ivo Grbic, Lucas Torreira and Luis Suarez, the three summer signings, were in the first team list which includes 25 footballers.
The Atletico Madrid squad list is the following:
Goalkeepers: Ivo Grbic, Jan Oblak and Miguel San Román.
Defenders: José María Giménez, Renan Lodi, Stefan Savic, Felipe Monteiro, Mario Hermoso, Kieran Trippier and Sime Vrsaljko.
Midfielders: Lucas Torreira, Koke, Saúl, Thomas Lemar, Marcos Llorente, Héctor Herrera, Vitolo, Ismael and Toni Moya.
Strikers: Joao Félix, Luis Suárez, Ángel Correa, Ivan Saponjic, Diego Costa and Yannick Carrasco.
