Simeone summed it all up in one word: “Happiness”
Diego Simeoncoach of Atlético Madridsummed up in a nutshell his state at the end of the match at Old Trafford, in which the rojiblanco team qualified for the quarter-finals of the Champions League after beating Manchester United.
“Joy. Lots of people working to make things right. Lots of people to get out of that erratic streak. We’ve been a competitive team, not ashamed to play back, knowing what to do when coming out. The goal appeared out of play for little that made us think we could injure the rival The goal appeared which gave us the lead and in the second half there was a work of brilliant team, one of the best this season, which pleases me”.
“All the people. There’s not one who didn’t work the game well. On the wing they made us go lower and lower and that’s why we went to 4-5- 1. A great game from Lodi, with a Herrera who, when he generates play, allows us to get the ball out, brilliant defense and Oblak, who once again gave us peace of mind in the aerial game” .
“He has a great shot with a brown ball. He is impatient. He had to wait, he had to see Reinido arrive, but Carrasco’s sanction came. It’s football. When you work, there is always an option.
This Atlético is another
“We come from a season where we were champions. It cost us this year with the irregularity we had, but after the game in Osasuna the team showed a different spirit”.
Dream of Champions?
“Today we are concerned about the Rayo game. Giving the president that win in his 1,000 official games.”
