"More than annoyed, I am disappointed," said Cerezo to Fox Sports. "I thought that Antoine had a great future at Atletico, with big titles and big league wins. The problem is that everyone thinks in their own way. We respect his decision, I and Atletico fans. We wish him all the luck in the world. One goes and others will come. I don't know where he will play, ask him. He can play where he likes.

"This is a surprise, it's a disappointment. If I was his advisor I would have told him to stay here. It's a free life and everyone can do what they think is right."

On Diego Simeone, who has been linked with taking over the Argentine national team at some point, Cerezo added: "Like every Argentine, he one day hopes to be with the national team. The day that he is, I will be there in the stadium celebrating with the Argentines."
