“We all could have done more this season”


The coach of Atlético de Madrid, Diego Pablo Simeone, confessed this Saturday that the analysis of the season is that it was “irregular” and everyone could have “done more”, although he highlighted having fulfilled the objective of playing the next ‘Champions’, while who did not hide that this Sunday will be the farewell of Luis Suárez, among others, from the Wanda Metropolitano.

“I had a talk with Luis in mid-November, long, hard, sincere, where both parties were able to talk about what he saw going forward, about what we were going to need from him. From that talk to today, each one has respected everything We talked. I am grateful to Luis Suárez for last season, which was tremendous. This is still the scorer of our team, tomorrow he will play, with the people who behave like he always plated, “he said.

The Argentine coach valued in the press conference prior to the duel against Sevilla the end of the contract of a Luis Suárez who will be difficult to replace, although that “will be discussed when the League ends”. Now, Atlético has two days left “to finish as high as possible” within the Top 4.

“There are still two more days to close a season that was irregular, beyond these two dates, the analysis will not vary too much. We all could have done more this season. I am left with the rebellion with this famous league of 14 games, which It was easy, with humility we were once again able to lead the club and the team to be among the best in the league, beyond always aspiring to go one step further”, he stated.

In addition, Simeone explained the situation of Daniel Wass, who has not played since his injury. “I spoke with him two weeks ago, explaining what he felt, what happened after his arrival and his injury, the little rhythm of the game that he has been having. In a final stretch where we have to decide who to count on to compete, he was choosing to other companions, because it could not have continuity”, finished.
