The 22-year-old was one of Atletico’s stars last season, helping Diego Simeone’s side to La Liga glory for the first time in 18 years as well as reaching the UEFA Champions League final.

Koke made 49 appearances in all competitions for Atletico and his form has been rewarded with inclusion in Vicente Del Bosque’s 23-man World Cup squad.

The Spaniard has been heavily linked with a summer exit but he says he is not thinking about leaving the Vicente Calderon, where he is under contract until 2018.

"My future is with Atletico. I am happy in my club and now I have a deal and do not think about an exit," he said.

Koke also says that he is aiming for glory in Brazil, but understands that he may need to be patient for an opportunity in the side.

"Really my head is only focused on the work for Spain in Brazil 2014. My dream is to win this title with minutes in the game, although that depends on the coach," he said.

"I have arrived to the team and each day I learn many things, especially about players such as Xavi and Iniesta."

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.
