Simeone reacted to Thursday’s 2-1 away defeat against Cultural y Deportiva Leonesa.
“We had chances to score, but their goalkeeper had a fantastic night. Our opponents played well and scored to take the game to extra-time. They deserved the win because they were clinical. We congratulate them. We have to be humble enough to be self-critical and work hard. I believe in my players,” the Argentine said.
Saúl also congratulated our opponents.
“It’s time to stick together. The game was very evenly matched and their goalkeeper made some great saves. We must congratulate them,” the Spaniard said.
