first_imgWe have played in three days to play against two of the best in the world, we compete well. Two Champions League finals, Spanish Super Cup … We have won three and lost three, we never lost in the 90 minutes. It is a place of departure, to think that if we follow the plan, we are competitive. Sometimes it is time to celebrate and other times to prepare to continue working.What did he say to Valverde?The most important play, probably to follow would be goal … He told him that he did what he had to do at that time.

Proud of how my team behaved.Differences with the match against Barcelona.We were better in the competition, in this match we alternated the occasions, there were several very good Courtois saves.

Sensations: “The team has competed, we have faced the two best teams in the world, together with Liverpool, Bayern … and this leads us to continue working to continue improving.”Did Atlético minimize Madrid?: “We have had situations to be able to score, especially in the last minutes, such as Correa and Morata. We compete better against Madrid than against Barça.”Atlético, better in the final minutes: “It can be, but it only counts who wins.”Angry with Valverde ?: “The prize for the best player in the tournament also has a point on that play. Valverde won the final.”The Argentine coach, at a press conference:What face do you have left?
