Atletico Madrid Unveil New Goalkeeper Antonio Adan (Photos)

Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid have unveiled their new goalkeeper Antonio Adan.

His unveiling took place at a small ceremony on Monday.

The 31-year-old joins the Rojiblancos from fellow Spanish side Real Betis after putting pen to paper on a two-year deal.

Atletico Madrid paid one million euros for him with a year left on his Real Betis contract.

Adan has been one of the most consistent goalkeepers in the Spanish La Liga since joining Real Betis from Real Madrid in January 2014.

He’s expected to provide a stern challenge to current first-choice goalkeeper Jan Oblak ahead of the new season.

The Spanish shot stopper spoke about the challenge ahead during his unveiling.

In his words, Antonio Adan said: “The challenge I have chosen is tough, we are talking about a great goalkeeper, but that is what it takes to be at a club like Atletico, where the best footballers are including three recent world champions.”

“I arrive with a tremendous dream, I’ve been playing at a great level for five years and earned tremendous experience.

“I am no longer the child who left [Real Madrid] a long time ago, I am a more mature and ready goalkeeper, who arrives wanting to fight and play as many games as possible.

“I know the difficulty of the challenge, but I am here because I have chosen to be.” He concluded.
