Our manager appeared in the press room of the Benito Villamarín to take stock of the season. "It’s been the most complicated season since I arrived at the club, and we are reaching the end, once again, third. We never gave up, we were very regular in the second round of play and that allowed the football players to be rewarded again with clinching a direct passage to the Champions League, which seems easy due to all the achievements that we’ve had in recent times, but for me it’s a tremendous joy."
Simeone also analysed today’s fixture against Real Betis that ended in a draw. "Today, we began well in a difficult, tricky, complicated match, Betis came with hardships of defeats both home and away, and obviously they needed to play a good match at home," he finished.
