Coach Diego Simeone full of praise for Man City

In the away match at Etihad Stadium in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals, Atletico Madrid was completely inferior to Man City. Using a large defensive strategy, the Spanish team still lost with a score of 0-1 after Kevin De Bruyne’s only goal.

After the game, the coach Diego Simeone admitted: “It was a difficult game, very difficult, against an extraordinary team. Man City could be the best team in the world at the moment. We played tight, sometimes counter-attacking. They are deadlocked, but it only takes a breakthrough ball to score. It is difficult to find a team with more players than Man City. They replace three excellent players with stars of equal qualifications.” .

Coach Diego Simeone also praised Phil Foden, who came on as a substitute and provided an assist for De Bruyne to score: “I used to guess Phil Foden would start because he’s a very dynamic player. . Coming on as a substitute in the second half, Phil Foden attacked very strongly and made the difference.”

Losing 0-1 made Atletico have to score in the second leg at home to raise hopes of progressing. This is a very difficult task for teachers and coaches Diego Simeone.
