The'Canarinha' international highlighted the difficulty of the game after the intense game lived in Getafe. "We knew it would be difficult. It is a field that in recent years has been a difficult place for us to get good results. The team has played well until the sending off. We dominated the game but with two players less it was difficult."
After the expulsion of Mario Suarez, Atletico Madrid suffered "To play with one player less is complicated". Filipe was resigned to the fateful move that led to the second yellow for the midfielder. "It's one where the ball touches the hand of Mario, the referee is not to blame but they should take a look at the rules, because it was unfortunate.”
For the Brazil, Falcao had a great game. "Falcao is excellent, he is a born leader. Always corrects the players and the team and has given a lot today." He also had words of praise for Oliver Towers. "Oliver will be the future of Atletico Madrid. He has everything, quality, humility and love of the fans. I hope he is here for many years."
Second place now occupied by Real Madrid, is four points away. "When you do not win, second place escapes and escapes. You have to pick up three points in this league as its so complicated, more so, knowing what budget our rivals have got. We have eight games left and we must try to keep adding points. Our goal is to qualify for the Champions League."
Without a doubt, he was one of the stars of the game in which he notched up 200 top flight games. "I have been adding things up and to reach 300 I have to play every game for three season. It is a tremendous honour for me to have played so many league games. I’m having a great season alongside great players." Asked if he will fulfil those 300 games wearing the red and white Filipe said. "I hope it's in the Atleti shirt because I am very happy here and I have four years left on my contract."
