Atletico Madrid coach Simeone dejected after Chelsea draw



Atletico Madrid coach Simeone dejected after Chelsea draw

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone was unhappy after his side let three points slip off their hands in the Stamford Bridge in the 1-1 draw against Chelsea.

Atletico Madrid failed to qualify for the next round and was dumped to Europa League

Simeone lamented: “It hurts as a result. Our football is wonderful, we stay out when we scored more points than last season, we do not look for excuses and we take responsibility.

“The Qarabag game, with 10 times without converting, is difficult to explain. The feeling, beyond this negative scenario, is that the team is and will compete for the Liga, Copa and Europa League.”

He continued: “This is not a failure. It was a situation that could happen. Failure is when you do not reach a target that you think you can meet, people are there and the team gives you back your self-esteem, there’s a very big season ahead.”

Asked if this is the end of the current Atleti team, Simeone added: “No, on the contrary, this opens up a new challenge and a new hope to keep fighting, everything that is bad, for us, becomes good.”

Simeone and his men will resume La Liga action with a trip to Betis to face Real Betis on Sunday.
