Atletico Madrid boss Diego Pablo Simeone has confirmed “Chelsea were better than us”, speaking after the 1-2 defeat suffered by his side against Antonio Conte’s men last night.
About Chelsea, he added: “They were always more comfortable, Chelsea had a good game overall, they were very competitive and strong. They won well and deservedly so”. Simeone pointed out also the way to bounce-back from this disappointing defeat for his players: “We took the defeat as it happened: Saul had a chance to put us 2-0 up, but they were better, tactically and physically with intensity. Chelsea have to be congratulated”. “All we can do is keep growing and improve in every aspect, and surely the win will come. If we’d lost to Roma, it would’ve been the same”.
