Atletico Win In Style

Forland and Resino lead Atletico's resurgence.

Forlan and Resino lead Atletico's resurgence.

The Abel Resino era began with a bang. Kun Aguerro scored just three minutes into their match against Recreativo Huelva and Diego Forlan added two goals as Atletico romped to a 3-0 road victory. Recreativo, who had been unbeaten in their first five games of the New Year, seemed to be a tough test for an Atletico side that hadn’t won in seven games and had lost 2-1 at home to Valladolid the previous weekend. That result led to the dismissal of manager Javier Aguirre and the appointment of former goalkeeper and fan favorite Resino. In danger of falling out of contention for the Champions League, this victory puts los colchoneros just two points behind Valencia and Villareal for the final spot. It’s a fantastic start for Resino and a much needed victory for Atletico.
