Simeone admits Atletico must improve

Wed 24 February 2021 | 8:39

Thanks to a wonderful bicycle goal from Giroud, Chelsea won the first league of their Champions League clash with the Roji Blancos.

“Looking three weeks ahead is too far,”

Simeone

said.

“We have a lot of games until then. We’ll be playing against an opponent with speed and will need to be able to stop it, to deal with forwards like Giroud and other powerful players.

“We need to have more of the ball and position ourselves better in attack. We’ll work on it, but we also have an important game against Villarreal.

"Work, work, work. I trust the team we have. If we were in the month of September and they told me we’ve lost but we’re still leading, I’d sign for it.”

He added:  "We are in a difficult moment, it is the reality. More based on the results than what happened on the field. We have to occupy ourselves, work and improve.

"At the moment, the game is difficult. They have an advantage, but I trust my team."

Three points clear at top of the La Liga table,

Atletico

will face Villarreal this weekend before a title-deciding home match against

Real

Madrid

on March 7.
