“Important and very good players within the team have always had a chance to come out. Then it will depend on what the soccer player wants and we will therefore try to follow what happens, because you (journalists) know well that, based on the decisions of the soccer players, we as coaches cannot do too much, simply invite them and tell them what what we see from them and how important Trippier is to our team. As a result of what happens, we will look for solutions, of course, as always ”, he explained during the telematic press conference this Saturday.
Trippier, with a contract with the rojiblanco club until June 30, 2023, is sought in this winter market by Newcastle, as he was also attracted last summer by other English teams, although then Atlético closed the exit door to the international English, one of the indisputable holders today in the eleven type of Simeone, as it was also in 2019-20 and in 2020-21, when he was proclaimed champion of the League. Throughout his career as an rojiblanco, Trippier has played 85 official matches.
Still isolated at home by covid-19, but already with a negative and waiting for a second result in that sense to lead the team on the field this Sunday against Rayo, Diego Simeone, the coach of Atlético de Madrid, is faces his worst run on the rojiblanco bench, with four consecutive defeats in the League, of which he analyzed that “some specific errors” are “hurting a lot” and “hurting too much” to the team, which is going through the “most difficult” moment of the course.
17 points behind Real Madrid’s leadership, with only 19 of the last 39 points added up in the standings, beaten in their four most recent games with eight goals against in just eleven rival shots, the reality of Atlético is below expectations At the beginning of 2022, which begins this Sunday for him against Rayo, a position -fourth- and a point -30 in total adds in this campaign the franjirrojo block- above him. Today is the one that makes the difference between playing or not playing the Champions League in 2022-23.
“Our goal is always the same since we arrived at the club; stay competitive, focus on match by match from which to come and understand each match as a final. And the goals will come as a result of the work done over a long season. Obviously, during the season they always go through different places and at this moment we are surely going through the most difficult ”, assumed the technician during the telematic press conference from his home, where he is still isolated by Covid-19.
Simeone has detected the problems of the team to chain those four unknown defeats so far for him: “Some specific mistakes are hurting us a lot, with which the team ends up being hurt too much by what it has really played and shown in the last four games, because I think that, both with Mallorca and with Sevilla and Granada, the team made situations and generated things to have another result. But the reality is the result. It’s the only thing that counts in the game. “
“The defeats are there and we have to face them as they are. I see the team well on the first day I was there (before testing positive for Covid-19 last Thursday, with which he has been isolated at home since then), I have followed him in training here by ‘zooming’ with the Guys, with Vivas (second coach), Hernán (Bonvincini, third coach) and the ‘Profe’ (Ortega, physical trainer), working on the field and agreeing on everything that we progressed during this week. I see them well, with great enthusiasm, great enthusiasm and wanting to start this year with a lot of energy ”, added the Argentine coach.
