Simeone: “When you win you have to celebrate the victories”

first_img-You already have Costa and João Félix can also come back. He has not used the trident since October 19. Do you feel excited about the possibility of using it again?-What excites me is that they are all on the staff. That generates internal competition. When João Félix and Costa have been away, Correa and Vitolo appeared and this generated a lot of internal competition. It also happened with Giménez and Savic, with Felipe and Hermoso. This internal competence of which I speak generates growth and improvement from the collective.– How can stop the euphoria that the fans are experiencing after the victory against Liverpool?-I have always said that the extremes are bad. And there are no extremes in the locker room. We have seen that people lived with the inconvenience with the negative results and when we see positive results the opposite happens. But we know that LaLiga is long, that the Champions League is very hard and the balance is in maintaining regularity.-The Atletico celebrated the victory against Liverpool and has received criticism …-In the same way that I am saddened by defeats, we must celebrate the victories. Liverpool was a first half. The second one remains.-This league day can be decisive, since there are direct duels between the teams that seek to fight for the Champions League positions …-It is true that there are important crosses. The championship is getting shorter and needs appear. It was seen the other day at Valencia-Atlético, where no one wanted to lose and they did take all three points to settle in the Champions League positions. There are many teams that are very good and whoever acquires regularity will be in these places that are more difficult this season. -Lodi played a great game against Liverpool and was uncovered as a world-class player …– He is a young boy who came from competing in a different league. And it comes here with the need to always win. He always put the best will and attention to grow. There were matches of LaLiga, Champions, where he did well and others where he needed other situations when I took him out of the field. There is no other way to improve than to continue working. The other day he played a great game against great players who attacked by his side. -How do you see the match against Villarreal?-We know that he is a rival who is getting good results, especially away from home. Our intention is to follow the upward line that we have since the match against Granada.center_img -The other day Messi made some statements where he left in a very good place. What is your opinion that Messi holds him in such esteem?-It is clear that they are opinions that people develop what they think of peers, colleagues or friends. I have always been respectful of the opinions of others. We must not celebrate now because it is Messi who speaks.last_img
