Coupet: Each match is torture

Table of Contents
Atlético Madrid goalkeeper Grégory Coupet has admitted that he is "tortured and suffered" with his lack of competitive action, while stressing he has no regrets about quitting Lyon for a new life in Spain.

The former France international has found first team football hard to come by, as he currently plays second fiddle to Leo Franco at the Rojiblancos.

"On match days, it is very difficult to be a substitute - I was not made to be a substitute," he told L'Equipe.

"Even if I love Atlético, even if everyone is very nice with me, each match is torture. I am suffering.

"Honestly, I would prefer to play at a smaller club but play.

"I am already asking myself whether I can interest someone else."

However, Coupet still feels his summer switch to Atlético was worthwhile.

He added: "I don't think it was an error, no, because it is above all a family adventure.

"I felt it necessary to leave to experience something else.

"Of course it is a great disappointment for me not to be playing. But on the other side of it all, my family is doing well. My wife and kids feel better here than they did in France.

"Here I am quite anonymous and it offers you a better quality of life. It's amazing. We can do things which were impossible to do while in France."
