He is annoyed
The disappointment is therefore immense for the Madrilenians in general and for Antoine Griezmann in particular. “He got along very well with Lemar, with Joao Felix, with De Paul… but there he was annoyed, so explained the Argentine coach. He left the team at a difficult point in the match, we saw that his intentions weren’t bad, but it depended on the interpretation of the arbitter. »
Diego Simeone was nevertheless satisfied to have seen his men stand up to Liverpool, one of the most convincing teams of the start of the season. “They started out stronger, with more intensity. Salah went 20 yards without anyone stopping him, and the second goal was a missed clearance. I can’t be happy because we didn’t win. But the team is strong, it showed. A team that creates four clear goal situations at Liverpool is rare. I don’t know if they often had to defend like that ”, he stressed.
