Garca Pepperwith a magnificent approach, managed to tie the Atlético de Madrid. A “ten” match, but one that did not skimp on final suffering. Because the UD Las Palmas coach wanted to talk about the group. From a team that barely had time to prepare for the game, but that, as admitted Simeonewas better than his rival: “We have been protagonists with the ball. The team has defended very high, we had to run backwards, but we have conceded very little. We have known how to play and also defend all together”, admitted the yellow coach at a press conference.
After exploding with tension in the 98th minute with the final whistle, the coach’s happiness arrived: “I leave with an incredible feeling for how we played with the ball and how we competed without the ball. I am satisfied with the little that we have conceded to Atlético. The team has been brave. This is the only way for us: to compete like animals,” he admitted.
It was questioned by individualities, such as Javi Muaz: “Javi Muoz is not lying to me. I know him from last season and this one. Today I was unfair to Enzo, because then he showed excellent minutes”, but, above all, he wanted to emphasize the joint work: “Today we had in front of a great team. I wanted the players to see that I am with them. They are right or wrong, but I wanted them to see me close because I was competing with them.”
