Not in their usual stripes as Atletico were in black The whole thing is actually that simple when Atletico Madrid, upon wining the King's Cup days ago , decided to fly half the earth to tropical Singapore for one purpose - to help raise fund for the Singapore Olympic Foundation (SOF) on the invitation by businessman Mr Peter Lim.

It's not because the identity was already made known days or weeks earlier, in fact, the name of the German coach started to trickle in after lunchtime when various social media platforms having hints suggested the former Iraqi national coach would be the Raddy Avramovic's replacement.
