Diego Simeone, Atlético de Madrid coach, said this Wednesday, after the 0-0 against Porto in the Champions League, that his team has “improvement and work ahead”, and advanced that, when his team achieves “speed up the game, footballers” that it has will make “that the difference may appear”. His analysis of the game, however, took a back seat because of the name of the day, Antoine Griezmann, who was whistled on his return to the Wanda Metropolitano.
“First of all, you have to seek to continue improving. It is clear that the team has improvement ahead. We have work ahead. And we will aim at that, to continue searching and finding what makes the team better to have the continuity of the game for as many minutes as possible, “he explained in statements to ‘Movistar’ after the crash.
“We did not get into the game badly. It went well, especially the first 10, 15 minutes. Then there was a moment when we slowed down. That is why I am talking about finding a regularity in the game and increasing the speed in the game. When we do, the players we have will make the difference appear, “he continued.
And he spoke of Antoine Griezmann, abronado by the fans on his departure to the pitch. “They are (the media) making a movie and a morbid of a situation that clearly generates us the importance of having recovered an extraordinary footballer like him and that we can enjoy it. “
“We hope he gets better and can respond to people who are criticizing him.. He has a challenge ahead as a result of what has happened in the past, “he added.
