AFC Bournemouth loan man ‘makes admission’ over future – Atletico Madrid return close

Speaking to the Daily Echo, AFC Bournemouth loan man Rodrigo Riquelme has admitted he doesn’t know what his immediate future holds.

The Atletico Madrid youngster linked up with the Cherries on loan last summer in an eye-catching deal.

Riquelme had spent time in England training with fellow Championship outfit Reading prior to his AFC Bournemouth loan switch. His campaign in the second-tier has given the youngster the chance to experience senior football outside of his home country, Spain, for the first time.

It will be interesting to see if Riquelme returns to England for a second stint next season or looks to remain in Spain with parent club Atletico.

14 of his 18 outings for Bournemouth have come off the bench, being limited to just four starts. Across all competitions, the young attacking midfielder has chipped in with two goals.

He made only his second Championship start at the weekend, playing all 90 minutes in the Cherries’ defeat to Wycombe Wanderers.
