Throughout the season, Atlético de Madrid earned a place among the candidates, after leading LaLiga by much difference, two falls against Levante began to bring down the team. Although they have been able to maintain an advantage, Barcelona and Real Madrid are getting closer and closer.
If to that is added the elimination in the Champions League and Copa del Rey, things for Diego Simeone could be taking another course. Spanish media speculate on the continuity of the Argentine coach and consider that his great "salvation" will be to win LaLiga. At a press conference, Simeone referred to the present of the team, especially after the elimination against Chelsea: “I feel that the team is giving everything, a ten of everything. The one that I have to demand is me, the responsibility is mine", he remarked.
For the coach, "It is normal that all this time passes in situations like this, the rivals compete very well and there are eleven games left. We will have to go game by game more than ever", assured. Simeone preferred to focus on the next match and on the quality of his players: "They are professionals, they know what this game is about, it happened to us on other occasions and the team worked well yesterday, with enthusiasm and enthusiasm and focused on Alaves" , he pointed out.
Next Sunday they will face Alavés, a team that he described as difficult "they are clear about their strengths and weaknesses, they are always competitive although now the results are not accompanied by them," argued the coach. Simeone lives a complex stage with Atlético, but still with an important advantage to fight for the title of the local tournament, the mattress team depends on itself.
