Saúl: “We managed to put ourselves in the position we should be”

Saúl Ñíguez was the protagonist of #LaPreguntaMahou before receiving Alavés at the Wanda Metropolitano today. The Atletico midfielder was pleased to have taken third place after the break due to the coronavirus health crisis, but he considers that this is not the time to stop.

“I think the team is in a good dynamic, We are getting the results, but we cannot stop now. The work is not fully done, it is true that we have achieved the most difficult thing that is put ourselves in the positions that we should and must be and it remains to finish the task with the match by match knowing that each match is a final. Now we play against Alavés at home, an important match “points out the '8'.

When asked what is his most special goal as a rojiblanco, Saúl explains that “as important, I would say that the Champions League semi-finals against Bayern at home at Vicente Calderón. Personally, I really like the goal against Deportivo at home and Leicester in their Champions League stadium. ”

One of the great handicaps of the return to competition is having to do it without an audience in the stands. For Saúl, “we feel an immense emptiness to see that our people are not near usIn the end, that gives us a plus when we play at home and when we play outside, always seeing your fans who accompany you everywhere is very important to us because they are always supporting you. It is an emptiness that can be seen and felt in the stands “.

Lastly, he praised the great level of Alavés, but with the clear mission of taking the three points at home. “It is a rocky team, with very good attack players, Joselu, Lucas … they can make a difference at any time. If we are together and we have the ball we can harm the rival “Saúl said.
