Diego Simeone has qualified with Atletico Madrid in the European spring after the 1-0 win against Hapoel Tel-Aviv, but the Argentine is pleased firstly by other aspect. The coach believes that the most important achievement is that his team has played in the Europa League with many young players or with those who have not had the chance to play too much in the Liga so far.
“We qualified forward and are back in the European spring, which is not less. But I’m glad we managed to do this with players who do not have performed so so far and could gave them trust. And they have done their duty and qualified the team in the next phase, “said Simeone.
The South American commented about the fact that fans have complained that he not used the best players, “It’s normal that fans always want to see their idols, but I have to find the middle way and perfect balance for the team to have part of a good season in the championship and in the European Cups. “
In the next six games in La Liga, Atletico will have difficult task. Diego Simeone’s players will meet Sevilla, Real Madrid and Barcelona. “As we go forward in the competition is getting harder. Claims always growing, but we want to approach each match with humility, because as we know exactly where we are and how we can improve our performance,” said the former Argentina international.
