Simeone: “The squad is good and the one that is failing is me”

Diego Pablo Simeone has spoken in the preview of the league match against Elche that will take place this Thursday at 9:30 p.m. at the Civitas Metropolitano and that will serve as a return to domestic competition for a team that is still in crisis. The first questions of the press conference have been about Joao Félix and the end of it has gone through the self-criticism of the Argentine coach.

Joao Felix case

“It’s a good, working relationship. Since I’ve been at the club, I’ve never stopped looking for the best for the club, beyond some differences that exist between people and we can’t agree on everything. Until the last day Whether it’s me or the footballers. Giving everyone the best and getting the best out of them. From everyone. What matters to me is the team and he is important to the team. If he transmits what we saw in the World Cup to us, it will be very important. He has conditions and talent and the team needs his qualities”

He does not speak of Borja Iglesias

“They have known me for a long time. They know that I don’t talk about the boys who are not in the club”

Could Cholo leave in January?

“While we have been and are in the club with four firm legs, we become strong. We need the four legs we talked about and that strength. We have shown it for many years and we are going to continue”

Template with deficiencies. Whose fault is it?

“We have a great squad, four players in the World Cup final, perhaps the one who is not giving everything is the coach. We have a great squad. I am the one who has to improve so that they can raise their level in LaLiga. They are more or except the same names that LaLiga won in the absence of Trippier and Suárez. The base of the LaLiga headlines are there. There is Correa, Carrasco, Joao, Giménez… we add Griezmann. The coach is the one who is failing more than other things”

Return to defense of five

“There are not many variants, sometimes it is more comfortable to play with a line of five to equalize in the middle, a matter of numbers. Then, as always, the important thing is to have the ball, not the system”
