Madrid, July 29 (IANS) Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo said that it was “something to be proud of” to see Mario Suarez “grow up from being a child” and stressed that the Spanish football club is and will always be home for the midfielder who is moving to Italy’s Fiorentina.

You are going to a great team and a great city. Seeing you grow up in this club from being a child is something to be proud of. You are a thoroughbred Atletico,” Cerezo said on Tuesday, reports Efe.
