Defender Santi has left Atletico Madrid to join Primera rivals Albacete. The 30-year-old ends a ten-year stint at the Vicente Calderon by returning to
former club Albacete. The stopper - who was the last remaining member of Atletico's double-winning squad in 1996 - has been a peripheral figure this
term and will now look to kick-start his career in the second half of the season. He admitted he was sad to be leaving Atletico, and insisted he would
always consider the capital club as his true home.
