Just one day after Atlético’s heavy defeat in San Sebastián, in which he was eliminated by Real Sociedad in the round of 16, Luis Suárez sends a message appealing to caste and conspiracy. The charrúa did it on his social networks, with a story with a photo of him in a match match and that phrase: “criticism makes you stronger“, the last part in capital letters. The charrúa, who was a substitute in the game and entered a triple change of Cholo when the game was still 1-0 for the txuri-urdin. “We will never stop working to improve, it is our duty. TOGETHER we will get ahead“, continues his message crowned by the following hashtag: #aupaatleti #strongpersonality.
That is precisely what Atlético needs at the moment: strong personality to ward off the crisis of the game, results and identity that the rojiblanco team is going through, with seven defeats and one draw in the last twelve games. Men who grab the chest and turn around the complicated situation that lives in the rojiblanco club only a few months after being proclaimed League.
In the last two games, two defeats, the rojiblanco team lost the chance to fight for two titles: the Spanish Super Cup in Riyadh and the Copa del Rey. A competition, the latter in which Cholo had taken himself very seriously this season, after the debacles against Cultural and Cornellà, lining up their starting goalkeeper, Oblak, from the first tie. But this year neither.
