Luis Garcia admitted the lure of returning to Atletico Madrid was too strong to resist after rejoining his former club from Liverpool.

Garcia, who spent the 2002-2003 season at the Vicente Calderon, signed a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee with the Primera Liga side - and, while conceding it was hard to leave Anfield, the Spain international revealed he could not turn down a move home.

He said: "I could have stayed or I could return to Spain. I have made a decision which I believe is the right one. I simply couldn´t reject the offer when given the opportunity to return to Atletico."
