Diego Simeone He is in Argentina and after his arrival in the country he spoke exclusively with TyC Sports. The Argentine coach of Atlético de Madrid referred to the Argentine National Teamthe defeat against Uruguay and the classic against Brazil that they must face this Tuesday.
“It was a tough game, Uruguay played very well in terms of intensity, how to press, I didn’t let Argentina think in all those times that obviously the team needs to hold the ball and have good possession to be able to attack. “I think Uruguay worked to prevent this from happening in the game, it was intense during the ninety minutes and I think they won a deservedly won and well-played game.”Cholo highlighted.
When asked if ‘he saw Bielsa’s hand’ In the Uruguayan team he had no doubts: “We know Marcelo, he is a coach who maintains that intensity on all teams, he has young people in Uruguay today and I’m sure he feels stronger, they follow him and they are all ‘sponges’ to accompany him”.
When asked about the future rival, Brazilrecognized that he is totally different from the rest and the team knows it. “They have responded very well in these last games they have played against Brazil”, he assured and also acknowledged that Verdeamarela is not ‘so good’. He also warned: “You have to be careful because that ‘it’s not so good’ is dangerous. But I think that this match with Uruguay will surely do the group good because they have a chemistry between them and a strength that is perceived enormously from the outside, that they are winners, that they are doing well and that they want to continue in that streak that is very difficult because “You can’t win every day.”.
“Better than the coaches, no one sees the game and Scaloni will clearly understand how he has to play, “I don’t imagine it will change much.”He said without hesitation about the possibilities of making changes to the team to face Brazil.
