Diego Pablo Simeone addressed the media after the point won by the team at San Mamés. The Argentinian analysed the match: "It’s been an exciting and thrilling match, as all the ones that we play here in Bilbao. We had a good start in the first 30 minutes. From there, Athletic got back into the game with the tie. The second half was similar. In a counterattack we put ourselves at a disadvantage and then Griezmann's great goal gave us the tie. We played a very good match."
In addition, our manager stated: “We have been growing match by match, getting closer to being regular in the game. The team’s start and final push was very good."
