Relaunched because the departure of Joao Flix, everybody highlights the great environment within the locker room as the important thing. In the present day towards Valencia he’s in search of his twelfth win because the World Cup break

I see the group improved and it feels the perfect. And whoever desires to know it, perceive it. A couple of days in the past I listed Simeone, in the course of the tribute to his historic match file with Atlético, his greater than 1,000 press conferences. There are few with out his messages. For just a few weeks, coinciding with the awakening of the group after the World Cup, Cholo has not ceased to face out in environment within the dressing room as a key issue. One other dart for whoever desires to know it to know.

Atltico faces the start of the launched spring, at its finest second all through the season. After the World Cup, together with the Cup matches, the file is so devastating (11 wins, three attracts and solely two losses, certainly one of them in additional time) that it’s much more painful to keep in mind that starting of the course that now prevents any possibility of title. Not solely was Europe squandered like by no means earlier than, the rojiblancos additionally weighed down the battle for an already unattainable League even though within the final month solely Barcelona have achieved extra factors.

To know extra

He hasn’t misplaced within the championship since January 8, he hasn’t conceded a couple of objective since October 29 in Cádiz… And the third place he sits within the Champions League and approaches the objective of returning to the Tremendous Cup, which till not too long ago appeared It is usually a utopia, it’s already a actuality: La Actual, which got here to take seven factors from it, is now three behind. The strain influences, already overcome the duel of the continental failure. Additionally the load of video games, just one every week the place to focus the bodily efforts. And the evident step ahead in soccer, with a protection of 5, griezmann as a paradigm of that excellence of excessive strain and electrical connections in assault after restoration. Nevertheless it’s not simply the outcomes.

For a very long time the one anger in Atlético has to do with the will for extra – like when on Monday Memphis Depay and Marcos Llorente They have been changed in Montilivi even with a draw- or with frustration with the referee’s choices, as within the tie within the current derby at Bernabu. The retailers within the winter market, particularly, in fact, that of Joao Flix, They’ve put an finish to the everlasting rigidity with the Portuguese, with their substitutions and their fuss. A rigidity that was contagious, that generated insecurity in a bunch that confronted battles like a defeated military earlier than leaving.

“We’re collectively”

Cholo’s pupils repeat the coach’s personal mantra in public: Each time the dressing room grows, has energy and competes internally, we enhance. morata, goalscorer within the final two video games, even though reinforcement Depay stole his place within the beginning eleven: I hope we proceed alongside this line. We’ve got an excellent surroundings. It exhibits that we’re collectively. Griezmann, after hugging his coach in his nice objective towards Sevilla: We’re doing very effectively and we’ve to take pleasure in ourselves. Oblak: I see the group as robust, after the World Cup we’ve improved so much. To such an extent every part appears to have modified a lot that Simeone’s doable departure on the finish of the season is not talked about: it’s a truth that he’s already planning the following course, as indicated by his lustrous contract.

And Joao Flix doesn’t appear to be a part of these plans, a matter to be resolved. The Portuguese continues to ship messages since his mortgage in London, about how snug he’s with Chelsea’s offensive sport, in regards to the non-chants from the Metropolitan stands -they did not have for me- and even some as ridiculous as that in Spain they did not know the right way to pronounce your final title appropriately. Prolonged his contract till 2027 or somebody places greater than 100 million euros or on June 30 he should return to Simeone’s orders.

However earlier than that, Atlético has 13 video games left, the primary tonight on the Cvitas Metropolitano towards Valencia de Rubn Baraja, predictably with Rodrigo dePaul again to the beginning eleven. An evening to increase the streak and watch for the results of the traditional on Sunday. After which why not dash to second place. On the horizon, the go to to the Camp Nou on April 23 as the principle stumbling block of a pleasant calendar.
