Vicente Calderon: The new home of Jose Maria Gimenez

The 18-year-old was officially unveiled as the La Liga club's latest acquisition on Wednesday, as he penned a five-year contract.

Gimenez becomes the fourth addition at Atletico this summer, with deals for David Villa, Martin Demichelis and Leo Baptistao having already been sealed.

The youngster cannot wait to get started in European football and is expecting to learn plenty from experienced Uruguayan compatriot Diego Godin at Vicente Calderon.

He said on his arrival in Spain: "This is a dream, I'm so happy.

"I love to fight for every ball as if it is the last minute of a game and I am the type of player who never abandons my team-mates.

"I have come here to grow.

"Diego Godin is one the reference points of the Uruguayan national team and I'm looking forward to learning a lot from him."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
