Tiago embarks on second spell at Atlético

Tiago will return to Club Atlético de Madrid for the 2010/11 season after the Spanish club agreed a second loan deal with Juventus for the Portuguese international midfielder.

Tiago will return to Club Atlético de Madrid for the forthcoming season after the Spanish club agreed a second loan deal with Juventus for the Portuguese international.

The 29-year-old midfielder joined Atlético for a first loan spell in January. He played 23 league and cup games for the club in the second half of the season and scored three goals, albeit he was ineligible for their triumphant UEFA Europa League campaign.

Tiago joined Juventus from Olympique Lyonnais before the 2007/08 season but has struggled to hold down a regular first-team place in Turin. Atlético will face FC Internazionale Milano in the UEFA Super Cup in Monaco on 27 August prior to beginning the defence of their UEFA Europa League title next month.
