Simeone is unsatisfied with Atletico despite the victory

first_imgAtletico’s boss Diego Simeone, was happy with the result against Monaco but not with the performance in the last 20 minutes of the match.Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone is feeling uncertain this season with the squad he has, the results they are giving him like the one against Monaco this Wednesday are not enough in his view to get to the final.The Colchoneros were able to dominate Thierry Henry’s French club during the majority of the match at the Metropolitano, but the Argentine manager is aware of how weak Monaco currently is and he considers that this victory should’ve been a lot more scandalous than it actually was.The early goal from Koke gave them the chance to manage the remaining 88 minutes left in the match, then a clinical finish from Antoine Griezmann before half an hour had passed was the one that sealed the victory for the Spanish club against a lifeless Thierry Henry side.The French manager’s job is starting to get questioned with results like this one, but he already mentioned that this game was more a learning experience than an actual attempt to get three points from the venue where the Champions League final will be played next year.👌Z E N👌#AúpaAtleti #AtletiASM #UCL— Atlético de Madrid (@atletienglish) November 28, 2018Simeone was precisely questioned about this final that the Atletico Madrid stadium is set to host, the Argentine manager does feel pressure when anybody asks him about it and it only reminds him that his players are not ready for that stage of the competition yet.“It was very good until the 70th minute and they we lacked energy, while the opponent got better,” analyzed Simeone when asked about the match via Marca.“With the introduction of [Radamel] Falcao, he gave them more experience and the freedom they had from losing 2-0 meant they could play more freely.”“I don’t think about that much because it’s far away. It wouldn’t do us any good to analyze and think about and get excited about that.”“Reality is what matters. We’ve been putting together a very good Champions League campaign and will be in the last 16 again. We needed to qualify.”“Since the Champions League started we have been clear about our plan as a result of what happened last year.”Gerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns.

Find out what he had to say here!➡ #AúpaAtleti— Atlético de Madrid (@atletienglish) November 28, 2018With the next round ticket already secured, Atletico Madrid still doesn’t have the top spot secured as Borussia Dortmund salvaged a point against Club Brugge and left the definition of this group for the final matches in December.The German sensations have to travel to Monaco, whereas Atletico Madrid will do the same against the Belgian squad and they will need a victory to secure that top spot.But the main concern for Diego Simeone is not longer if he will get that position, all he worries about now is about improving the squad’s level of performance because there are some squads that are currently playing better than they are.The ultimate goal is to obviously reach the final at the Metropolitano by the end of the season, but Simeone will remain faithful to his philosophy of always taking it one game at a time.For now, the Colchoneros’ next objective is the trip to Girona on the weekend.🌛🌃 Sweet dreams, #AtléticosAroundTheWorld!🇪🇺 Another European win, another step… And we are through to the last 16! 💪 🙌 Thank you for your support, Atleti Family! 🔴⚪🔴#AúpaAtleti #UCL— Atlético de Madrid (@atletienglish) November 28, 2018What aspects does Atletico Madrid need to improve in order to reach the Champions League final at the Metropolitano this season?
