[Recently, one of the most high-profile cases of tapping up has involved Barcelona once again in their successful pursuit of Antoine Griezmann] Through this statement, Atletico Madrid wishes to express its strongest disapproval of the behaviour of both, especially FC Barcelona, for prompting the player to break his contractual relationship with Atletico Madrid at a time of the season when the club was involved in the Champions League tie against Juventus, as well as the league title race against Barcelona
This is something that we believe violates the protected periods of negotiation with players and alters the basic rules of integrity in any sporting competition, as well as causing enormous damage to our club and its millions of fans

[Barcelona have been fined just €300 by the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) for their actions in the signing of Atletico Madrid forward Antione Griezmann] It is evident that the amount of economic sanction does not bear any proportion to the importance of the facts that have given rise to this file. Taking into account the economic capacity of the club and the amount of the economic operation, this committee is aware that the payment of €300, beyond its merely symbolic nature (the fine is imposed because the issued club has been considered the author of a disciplinary infraction), will not contribute to the sanctioned club in particular and, probably, other clubs that may be in the same situation in the future, adapt their behaviour to what is required by regulation. However, this is not a sufficient reason for this committee to opt for the imposition of a sanction - the closing of the stadium by a party - which, as stated, seems to be intended for infractions of another nature

[RFEF demands La Liga chief resigns as Villarreal v Atletico Madrid match in Miami is shelved] The request to the member clubs of La Liga to start a dialogue with the Federation is reiterated and the immediate dismissal of the president of La Liga or his immediate resignation is requested. The president of La Liga, Mr. Javier Tebas, has filed all kinds of lawsuits (criminal, civil, commercial, administrative) and appeals against the RFEF, in what is considered an attempt to justify his own mistakes.
leader of La Liga considers that he can act outside the Federation, however, judges, administration, etc … have found and communicated that this is not possible and that, without the authorisation of the RFEF, he cannot organise the soccer competitions in Spain. La Liga is a competition manager that must adapt its performance to the rules of FIFA, UEFA and RFEF. This attitude that can be considered a total disregard from the president of La Liga for the rules of FIFA, UEFA, as well as the RFEF, leading to an extremely serious situation and putting La Liga clubs themselves at risk.
In the opinion of the RFEF, this attitude is ‘absolutely hostile and irresponsible’ against the institution that directs football in Spain and is causing damage to this sport and especially for clubs that are part of La Liga. It must cease immediately

The 26-year-old has appeared 41 times for Belgium and netted six goals.

He played in the UEFA Euro 2016 and 2018 World Cup – in which his team finished third – with the Red Devils.
A skilful, fast and talented player that knows our team returns to Atleti. He can dribble, score and set his team-mates up, making him a threat inside and outside the box. Welcome back, Yannick!

[Atletico Madrid to maintain membership numbers of fans who died from coronavirus] During these past few months, we have gone through difficult times and the Atletico de Madrid family has not been oblivious to the consequences caused by Covid-19. Sadly, we have had to say goodbye to illustrious players and coaches who made Atleti great throughout its history, as well as some of our club members. As soon as it’s possible, the club will pay a well-deserved tribute to them in gratitude for their dedication and love for our colours and to show that they will always remain in our memories. Due to the very difficult circumstances we’re going through due to the health crisis, the club has exceptionally decided to respect and maintain the membership numbers in the 2020-21 season of all those who have passed away during the pandemic, as a symbolic gesture in their memory and in gratitude for their support. The membership numbers, which have great sentimental value as they indicate the uninterrupted seniority as a club member, will be updated as usual in other cases, but will be kept for next season to pay tribute to all those Atletico supporters who left us due to this health crisis.
