Diego Pablo Simeone appeared in the press room of the Gran Canaria stadium after the game. The Argentinian manager analysed the fixture: "It was a very good match. At the start, we were ambitious, enthusiastic and energetic. We knew where we could harm them and we took the lead rapidly. In the second half, the team played the match in the best way."
"The result shows 1-5, but without the effort, without the work and without the humility that my players had, we would not have reached this final result," he noted.
