Dembele on moving to Atletico: I am happy to be here, Fernando Torres was my idol as a child

New Atletico Madrid striker Moussa Dembele has addressed first press conference at the club. 

He also explained how Atleti legend Fernando Torres was his idol as a kid.

Diego Costa terminated his contract at the club last month and Dembele would be the de facto replacement for him in the Atleti ranks and would provide cover in the squad.

French striker Dembele joined Lyon from Celtic in 2018 and had netted an impressive 44 goals across his first full two seasons at the club but has struggled this campaign, netting just once in 16 Ligue 1 appearances, of which just six have been from the start.

Dembele explained, in quotes carried by Marca: “Mainly, I’m a striker and I like to score goals. That is my job. I like to run into space, receive the ball and score goals. I am a physical player but with technique. I cannot wait to start playing here. As a child, my favourite player was Fernando Torres – he was my idol, so I am happy to be here. I hope we do great things together.”
