Simeone comments on what Joao Felix did in the derby

Cholo praises Real Madrid while defending his style

Simeone analyzed the defeat in the derby vindicating his style.

Sensations. “The players gave everything, they gave themselves well to the game, they have a very good direct game, a quick transition from defense to attack, forcefulness, orderly defense, play well, take advantage of their chances… It is a great job by the Madrid coach “They counterattack with significant speed beyond the talent they have. But I think we always tried not to leave the game and in the second half we improved the intensity, I’ll stick with that, when Cunha and Morata came on, they gave a little more life. But if against Madrid you don’t have intensity…

Griezmann. “We understood that Antoine could come out from the start, he gave us a lot of work as a second striker trying to go down to associate, in the second half on the wing to play with two forwards. An important game as several boys did. I am left with the feeling of not having lost the face of the game despite the 0-2. The forcefulness is wonderful and to see a team that defends low and goes on the counterattack like that… It reminds me of the team we had with Costa, when they criticized us back then”.

Defending. “Savic and Josema are important. Today they played a good match within what we were looking for with duels that sometimes resolve them well and others poorly. We hope that Savic and Giménez can be with the team more this year because last season we suffered a lot. We hope counting on them to have alternatives”.

Defense and squad injuries. “We compete in each match as always, trying to give the maximum in each game and add as much as possible. It is true that we have just lost two games in a row at home. Llorente played as a full-back because he understood that he had more answers for the duel with Vinicius. Marcos has also played in the middle of the field. It is true that without Giménez or Savic we delayed Axel so that he could give us peace of mind on the pitch”.

Defeat. “We keep working and we look at Sevilla knowing what needs to be improved and what we do well”.

Joao-Griezmann. “We couldn’t connect like we wanted.”
