Good game

«I am not going to stop what I expected or not. You have to solve what is happening. The best thing we have done since the World Cup is that the team has recovered its game, its strength, its ambition, its way of playing… We started very irregularly and now we have regulated it. It will depend on how we end up and when the team is good, it ends up responding. The entry of Correa, Morata, Witsel, Pablo… we cannot put Kondogbia because the team is very good. It’s hard to train knowing this, but it is what it is. It’s a competitive club and we have to keep going.”

great defense

«The first half we had very good associative plays before the goal. In fact, we fell short at 1-0. If you do not have forcefulness and you are not accurate when you are superior, difficult situations appear. Then came the goals that gave us peace of mind. We look for this, what the team has: speed, we are defending well… That is very important for our game.

I respect

“There are several situations. When a player demands respect, we always say that disrespect is not training accordingly when they should enter. That is respect. We train players who play and who don’t play to make this happen. And this creates competition for you and we all win.”


«We have a very important game against Betis on the way back. Koke, Llorente, Barrios are going to stay… That is very good for us to be able to work and have people for when we compete ».


«Griezmann is one of those who best interprets the game. He knows where to do more damage and generate more danger and when he has this ability, you have to give him freedom ».
