Diego Pablo Simeone (left) laments during the match.


After suffering his biggest blur at Atlético, Diego Pablo Simeone acknowledged that Cultural Leonesa deserved the victory in the Copa match “because it was more forceful” than his team. “In addition, their goalkeeper had a fantastic day,” said the Argentine, referring to the outstanding performance of the cultural goalkeeper, the best on the field and the architect of the local victory.

In the press room, he said that the lack of forcefulness deprived them of the victory because they did generate enough opportunities that they could not transform. “That has been the key,” said Simeone, who has valued his rival's game: “They always believed and transmitted a continuous sense of danger.”

In addition, he highlighted the play of his opponent's second goal, “a very well executed backlash.” Despite the defeat, he stressed that he continues to believe that he has a great workforce and assured that he is convinced that with the work the results will accompany.

He also guaranteed that he has the same enthusiasm as the first day to continue working for Atlético and warned that there are complicated moments in all seasons. “We were left out of a very beautiful competition and from now on we have to look inside and improve. The responsibility is solely mine,” he settled.
