Recent comments from this intelligent wide man have led this source to suggest that he may one day soon be on his way to Anfield!
Atletico Madrid winger Simao Sabrosa admits he wants to play in the Premiership.
The Portugal international almost joined Liverpool two years ago and told El Mundo: “I would like to play in England once my contract with Atletico is over, but this may never happen.
“Their dynamic football and most of all the atmosphere attracts me a lot. And when I was in Portugal several clubs asked for me but nothing happened.
“I am happy at this club and within the city. And I believe the team can be even better, but they need to keep their players if they want to make it.
“We will have to see what the situation of the club will be (at the end of the season), and if they need to sell or not.” (tribalfootball.com)
Simao is of course a player that Rafa greatly admires and the fact that he is insinuating he is not too happy about the potential loss of top quality players and this could well lead him to seek a move away from Atletico. The Portuguese winger is a tricky customer and when he is not diving theatrically he is a top notch player who can beat a player and deliver more than his fair share of pinpoint crosses. Could Benitez make a move as this source suggests or has the arrival of Riera put an end to this on/off rumour? Are Liverpool fans happy with the performances of new signing Riera?
