Diego reveals delight at Atletico Madrid return

Diego reveals his delight after scoring on his Atletico Madrid return in the 4-0 win over Real Sociedad.

Diego has revealed his delight after scoring on his second Atletico Madrid debut in the 4-0 win over Real Sociedad on Sunday.

The Brazilian represented Atletico in the 2010-11 season, but has now returned for a second spell after joining on loan from Wolfsburg at the end of last month.

The 28-year-old entered as a second-half substitute against Sociedad and scored Atletico's fourth at the Vicente Calderon.

"I prepared a lot for this moment. I left Atletico, but Atletico never left my heart," the midfielder told reporters.

"Whenever possible I saw the matches, because I have a special affection for this club. I hoped to start well, but winning as we win and scoring is wonderful, I'm very happy about that.

"It is hard to put into words the feeling I have. This leaves me very happy, I try to contribute to the field and is what I will do until the end."

Diego has 33 international caps to his name.
