FC Barcelona – Atlético de Madrid After clicking against Atlético de Madrid
Q uique Setin, coach of FC Barcelona, regretted that his team was not able to take all three points in his duel with the Atlético de Madrid. The situation for the culs in the League is very complicated. They need Real Madrid to click if they want to continue in the fight for the title.
"It is a shame. We are having more and more difficulties. Leaving these points supposes that we really move away from the possibility of the title. We must continue working. The Atlético is a good team".
"We have tried to do somewhat different things, which we thought would give us enough. The Atlético defends itself very well, closes the spaces and commits us the exits. They have great players."
"I see him well, but not everyone can play. You have to decide on one. Maybe it is not logical to get it out in the 90's, but you always think that it can do something. They were doing it very well. They were playing a very good game. It is not easy. "
"I am quite happy with him. It is true that we have not been able to, but at times we have controlled quite well. It is not easy to play against this team, which is very disciplined. I am quite happy with the work of my players and with how we have raised the party. "
" I don't feel disc not used at all. "
" Let's try to incorporate a little higher on the sides. We have left Ivan a little further behind, making the start, and putting Riqui behind the two pivots, trying to find those two spaces. I'm not unhappy with how it turned out. We have controlled and Riqui has understood very well the position and what we have asked for. We couldn't because Atlético is a great team defensively. If we value only for the goals, we have not been able to, but I am happy with the work and the approach. It is a day in which the footballers have been extraordinarily well. "
" Naturally. The team has had a great game. We are convinced that we can continue forward. We remain strong, eager to try to earn the remaining points. "
" It seems very correct to me. "
" I feel supported by the dressing room, obviously. The meeting with the board, I will not reveal how it developed or what was said in it. "
" I do not agree. He is an important player. It is true that removing him with so little is hard for a player of his level, but circumstances have forced me to do so. The other option was not to get him out. Those in the field were doing well. I don't normally make changes that late if it's not to waste time. You trust a player like him to have a specific action that will win the game. I know it's hard. Tomorrow talk to him. I will not apologize, but I understand that he may feel bad and I also feel bad for him because he is a great soccer player and a great person. "
" The reality is that, surely, he was not there for 90 minutes , but we force him because the situation requires it. Between Messi and him they have scored a lot of goals. I'm happy with him, the other day he solved the game for us with two extraordinary goals. "
" These footballers don't have it. He has been surprising us for many years. "
" I am used to dealing with difficult situations. Be an anecdote after a while. Now I am not as happy as I was in the beginning, but I feel very good inside. I am satisfied with the work we are doing. "
" You have already earned it today. It has been at a very high level. We have all seen it. He has committed himself in everything we have asked him, with will and quality. This is the way to go there, of course. It takes three games. We will have to see tomorrow how he is. I am delighted with its performance. The club and fans must be, too. They have a great footballer ah. "
" I am not completely satisfied because we have not won, but I am happy because all the players have had a great match against a great rival. We have been extraordinarily well. We are lacking that point of success that the parties accommodate us in a better way. This is what is at the moment. It is obviously not for us. That centimeter that Marc has moved the foot has not allowed us to play more calmly. "
