Saul Niguez has candidly opened up on how frustrations at not being played in his correct decision at Atletico Madrid led to him joining Chelsea on loan. 

The Spaniard left it late to seal a temporary switch to the Premier League side on deadline day but within minutes he was on Twitch with prominent Spanish streamer Ibai Llanos.

Llanos, who has a close relationship with many top footballers including Lionel Messi, spoke to Saul about moving to England, leaving his family behind, not knowing the language and the influence of Spaniards in Chelsea's dressing room.

'I spoke with (Diego) Simeone,' he explained. 'I have been playing in different positions for three seasons. 

'I owe everything to Diego and he must be selfish and think of the group. 

'I saw myself stuck in a position that was not mine. Chelsea's option was to get out of the comfort zone, a challenge.'

Saul has long wanted to play further forward at Atletico, closer to that of a No 10, rather than a defensive midfield role which Simeone has long preferred.
