Atletico Madrid boss, Diego Simeone though full of praises for the work of his players, said after the duel against Real Madrid he has not seen it as ‘the reality of potential’.
“I don’t think of Zinedine’s references. I’m talking about the game being well prepared. We have been working from high to low.
”We don’t get out of that search. We need to improve on intentions. Before the Numancia had seen favorable situations.
“I do not consider this match to be the reality of potential between each other.”
When asked about Joao Félix and his price: “I see it better playing in front, with people upstairs. So that with his vision of the game he can hurt.
”In a 4-4-2 right, when you have Joao’s talent and enthusiasm for improvement you can play anywhere ”
“4-3-3 we have played little, the team ends up forming the players. And we do it in consequence of what we see. If we keep the talent as a team we will be closer to winning “.
“We worked according to the moments. We had prepared it well. The game against Chivas until 25 minutes had seen rapid transitions.
”The best of these three games was when we stayed with 10 against Chivas. Today we prepared as a result of what a Madrid-Atlético is and this match came out. ”
“I do not rush to anything. I live the reality of the moment. It was a good game. I see them with enthusiasm, optimism, enthusiasm. Now wait for the next game to rotate the players and get to LaLiga.”
”I was expecting such a bulky marker: “We prepared the game well. Having seen Madrid, we looked for where we could harm him.
”We tried to find good places at the exit of the ball and we were very precise, that in football it is important.
”When we had goal chances there was the real option to dial “.
However, he admitted the team has something to improve on; “There is always something that can be improved. Beyond the scoreboard, Madrid went to our field with great force. And it had occasions.
”That has to be adjusted and try to add talent and effort. Today all the important teams have 3 or 4 talented players in the group. The one a collective talent will be closer to winning.
“I do not see beyond the next game, to improve. Everyone must live in the same team and have the strength to compete. Achieving those successes is not simple.”
