Atletico Madrid midfielder Lucas Torreira admits he endured several problems during his two seasons with Arsenal.

Torreira sealed a deadline day loan switch to Atletico and helped his side to a 2-0 win over Celta Vigo on his debut at the weekend.

He told Ovacion: "I've suffered a lot of things, I had a lot of personal problems and more than anything my family also suffered.

"And with this adventure everyone is very happy. The most important thing is to be able to enjoy myself on the pitch, to be able to help teammates and make the fans happy, because in the end football is just that."

"I know I am a year on loan," he added. "I've been here for four or five days and it seems like it's a lot, because I've been treated very well.

"It's a new opportunity in my life, in which I have fought a lot, because Atletico has always been one of my dreams, one of my goals, and being able to achieve it at the age of 24 is very important.

"It all depends on how I go during the season, which I hope is very good. And maybe in the future I can stay at the club."
