Augusto Fernandez has no regrets of joining Beijing Reihe

Former Atletico Madrid midfielder Augusto Fernandez has no regrets following his move to Chinese Super League club Beijing Reihe.

The Argentine joins Beijing Reihe on a €4.5m transfer deal on the last day of transfer window in China.

Fernandez joined Atletico in January 2016 but a serious knee injury limited the 31-year-old to 34 appearances.

“My time at Atletico will stay with me. I gave my all, not only in those games but in training and day to day,” he told Marca.

“I leave happy because I have the respect of the fans and the people of the club.

“It is impossible to return at a club like Atleti following serious injuries and taking time over fitness, besides the economic offer was very important too of course.”
