The time has come for Atlético de Madrid to focus on the League again. The rojiblanco team, after falling at the Etihad Stadium against Manchester City (1-0) last Tuesday on the occasion of the first leg of the Champions League round of 16, wants to bring joy to its fans by defeating Real Mallorca in a key clash in the face of what lies ahead.
The rojiblanco coach Diego Pablo Simeone has appeared at a press conference in order to analyze the current situation of his team and answer the different questions from the media in person prior to this 31st day of the League.
These are the answers of Diego Simeone
Opinions about the approach against City: “We cannot value what people from outside may think or speak. We have to focus on this 14-game League. Tomorrow we will have to face a rival with a lot of need just like us. A tough and difficult game on a field that is always complicated “.
The goal in League: “Our search is always to advance, it is always to improve. We hope to continue along the same lines as the last games and for that we need everyone’s commitment”.
Champions League conclusions and match against Mallorca: “The League is totally different from the Champions League, we focus on Mallorca. And continue with the same path that we are doing in the League”.
Game reviews: “I don’t think what other people think. Everyone has their thoughts, everyone is respectable. From humility continue working and do the best for Atlético de Madrid”.
Rotations: “We come from four days after the game. There was rest time, the team is fine. We will continue in the same line that we have been acting”.
Minutes for Luis Suarez: “Both Joao, Antoine, Cunha, and Suárez… they trained today showing that they are ready to play tomorrow. We will possibly continue along the same lines”.
The keys against Mallorca: “A tough game, a coach with great experience in world football, who knows the Spanish LaLiga well and knows what it means to suffer. I don’t expect an easy game, with the offensive virtues that Mallorca has, which are quite a few and especially at home, make them stronger. We’ll try to take the game where we can hurt them”.
