Atletico Madrid is about to go back to the dark days.(When they usually finished 10 or so in the league.
Right now, 80% of their team is Griezmann, and they have struggled to keep up and win games against rivals that on paper where weaker than them. So what the hell is happening to Atletico?
Easy... Budget Cuts.
1. They sold their stadium and they are moving to the stadium that was built for the 2012 Madrid Olympics. So they basically recycled a stadium, and sold the old one beacause they need cash.
2. This year's team is weaker. Last summer they lost: Leo Baptistao, Raul Jimenez, Jesus Gamez and Borja Baston and they brought weaker players (Except of Gameiro)
3. Looks like their Chinese owner is not willing to keep the cash flow and wants to mantain the good results of last season with less budget. And that's NOT going to work.
