Diego Simeone accepts blame for a struggling Atletico side

About Football Express India - Indian Super League - I-League

Atletico coach Diego Simeone deems himself responsible for Atletico’s current failure. They failed to find their best form and hence they sit in fifth place in La Liga.

Atletico enjoyed a good run in 2021 after winning La Liga after a huge gap. But ever since then, they couldn’t live up to their reputations. Atletico is eliminated from this year’s Champions League finishing bottom and not getting a chance in Europa.

What did Diego Simeone say?

Speaking to reporters, Diego Simeone said:

“We have a great squad, four players in the World Cup final, maybe the one who is not giving his all is the coach.”

“I’m the one who has to improve so that they can raise their level in La Liga. It’s more or less the same names that won La Liga. The basis of starters are there, it’s the coach who is failing more than other things.”

Diego Simeone also spoke about his not so good relationship with Joao Felix.

“We have differences, but I have always looked for the best for the club. To squeeze the maximum out of everyone until the last day that I am there or those who have to be there,”

“(Felix) is important for the team. If he transmits to us what we saw in the World Cup, he will be very important. He has conditions and talent and the team needs his qualities.”

Seems like Joao Felix might leave the club after the season ends. Atletico should look to bounce back from their current position to compete in Europe’s highest level of football.

Atletico will play against Elche In their next La Liga game.
