Unproven Manager Joins Atletico Madrid!

Unproven Manager Matthew Johnson has taken charge at La Liga side Atletico Madrid, many fans are not happy with the decision considering how well the team are doing now and due to the fact that many top managers wanted the Atletico job! However, the Madrid board seem confident that Johnson is the right man for the job! He has just taken part in his first interview, here is what he said:

Interviewer: Hello Matthew, congratulations on taking charge at Atletico Madrid. Were you shocked they hired you?
Matthew: Not shocked, pleased. I'm not going to be false and make a sob story and say how this is one of the best moments ever and I was completely shocked that I got hired, I'm extremely pleased that I got hired but I wasn't shocked, I feel that my policies made me the perfect man for the job!
Interviewer: What were your policies?
Matthew: Youth. Is. Key. That is all I am going to answer, thank you for your questions, goodbye.

Matthew Johnson has certainly said his name on the scene with that interview, but can he cope in the big league? We will soon find out!

So guys, my plan is to only buy players under the age of 23 for the first 5 years then after 5 years I will not sign anyone over 21 years old! I hope you all stay with me through the journey and enjoy it as much as I hope you do!

This lad is already a first team player and will become one of the best players in the world! He is a class act and I think £6.5m is a bargain for such a young talent!
