Diego Simeone leaves Vigo with a lot of positive feelings

Diego Simeone was thrilled after Atletico Madrid’s 2-2 draw against Celta Vigo at the Wanda Metropolitano on Monday night. Following Santi Mina’s early opener, Luis Suarez’s double saw the hosts take the lead in the second half before Facundo Ferreyra netted the late equalizer for Celta. “To be honest, I’m leaving here with a lot of positive feelings,” Simeone told the press afterwards. “Second halves from Renan Lodi, Geoffroy Kondogbia, Lucas Torreira… the performance of Angel Correa… These are crucial things looking to the future. It was a difficult start to the game, and they played very well. Neither team had much of a chance. We improved with the system change in the second half, with Torreira and Kondogbia winning the ball back. The draw was adequate. Atletico didn’t deserve our goal in the first half, and they didn’t deserve their equalizer.”

A few hours before kick-off, it was revealed that Hector Herrera and Thomas Lemar had become the latest Atlético players to test positive for the coronavirus. “We are in a tough time for society, with a lot of complications,” added Simeone. “The cases aren’t just at Atlético. We still have players who can contribute, and they are not used to playing. Hopefully, we’ll get the boys back soon. Look at what is happening in society – Atlético are part of society”. Given the growing number of cases at Atlético, is the situation affecting the players? “You have to ask them,” Simeone replied. “We did a Zoom to get ready for the game. We got together at 7:15 pm. The reaction in the second half means we’re leaving here with a lot of positive feelings.”
