Diego Simeone has made a frank admission, following Atletico Madrid’s defeat to Chelsea last night.
The Blues beat 2 – 0 Spanish rivals to reach the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
“We tried to go and press them, but they were able to get out of it, and we could not keep up with them,” Simeone told reporters after the match.
“You have to congratulate your opponents when they are the better team. We tried to press them up the field, worked hard. We couldn’t attack the way we like.”
Then”It has been a tough campaign, lets not forget our trips to Russia and Germany, it has been really tough,” he added. “The reality is we need to keep improving, we have a promising future ahead of us.”
