New goalkeeper Christian Abbiati may only have been with Atletico Madrid a short while but he has already seen enough to feel this could be a special season for the Rojiblancos.

The 30-year-old Italy international was one of a host of summer arrivals at the Vicente Calderon as Atletico splashed out big money in a bid to improve on their disappointing seventh-placed finish last season.

Atletico have only managed to take one point from their opening two league games against Real Madrid and Real Mallorca, but Abbiati has high hopes for the future, saying: "Atletico Madrid can be a big surprise this year. We have a great group. This year we have new players and it will take a while to adapt, but it is only a question of time."
