They one in the second half, we the one from Koke’s ‘offside’ in the goal. Very few in the match, yes very good pressure from them, we couldn’t find the game. We didn’t have a good game. The game was clearly heading towards a tie and fortunately, with a good set piece, he made us win the game. Not having played well, it makes us improve and add three points”, he analyzed about the match.

Atletico Madrid from the point of view of goals. To continue improving and working. He is giving us a lot in the minutes he is coming on, be it 32, 36 or 15. It is an important change for us, it generates hierarchy for us. He has to be strong in the head and we continue with the path we believe in”.
“The reality is that in 30 minutes he is doing very well, we don’t know in 60. Now I’m going for reality,” he commented on whether the Frenchman can play from the start.
The mattress coach ended up hugging his players in the corner after the Frenchman’s goal. “Making a goal Griezmann, joao felix, Belt, he would be just as happy as me”, he concluded. “Joao is more mature, he needs a goal, he needs to score goals. He comes from many games without that caress that the goal gives him and one rushes for him to appear so that he arrives and moves further away. So calm down, he has it all. We need him to be well, to perform in the time the team needs him.”
