Simeone: “The results will be with us shortly”

MADRID, Jan. 24 (SportsFinding) –

The coach of Atlético de Madrid, Diego Pablo Simeone, was put first responsible for the rojiblanca elimination this Thursday in Copa del Rey against the Cultural and Sports Leonesa, with a 2-1 in extra time in which they lamented the lack of success, a “stumble” copero that does not take away his faith in his team and in the season.

“We were left out of a beautiful competition because it does not allow you to stumble. I congratulate the opponent, we look inside and improve. There were always complicated moments in all seasons,” he said at a press conference, after the short trip of Atleti in Cup, eliminated at the first exchange for a Second B.

The Madrid team did forgive or crashed with a hero Giffard under the sticks of the locals. “We had goal chances but we could not specify them, the opponent deserved the victory. We did not have the forcefulness we need to have. The responsibility is absolutely mine,” he said, making clear his desire to continue leading the rojiblanca ship.

“I am looking forward to working like every day since I arrived. I have not changed the penalties in the Champions League, when we are out and it will not change me now. I am convinced that I have great players, an important squad and that surely results will accompany us shortly, “he said.

The 'Cholo' did not fear criticism or voices that speak of an end of the Argentine cycle. “Journalists are here to give their opinion of what they perceive and we have no choice but to work. I believe in my players. Today we couldn't be concrete in the face of the goal, we had five or six, but it's football, when it doesn't do everything it's harder, “he concluded.
