Del Bosque: “Pique is playful, life is not for suffering”

first_imgAnalysing Spain’s tournament so far for ‘Iberdrola’, Vicente del Bosque highlighted the leadership qualities of players in his squad, such as Gerard Pique: “He is one of those that has spent most time with us, and is a man who voices his opinions. He is playful, life is not for suffering. We all have to ensure there is a positive atmosphere. We have spent 27 days together in training camp so far, if we reach the final that will total nearly 50 days, and that requires mental strength.” CEST 18/06/2016 at 21:43 With regard to Nolito, scorer of a goal against Turkey, he said the Celta striker “has not surprised me. We wanted someone to play in that area of the pitch, and we have not made a mistake in our choice. We need wide players, we have brought Pedro, Nolito, Lucas Vazquez and we have David Silva in that middle ground between a wide and central player.” Special correspondents The most pleasing thing for Del Bosque has been the atmosphere amongst the national team players: “The best thing I have seen these days has been the reaction of those on the bench celebrating the success of those on the pitch. That is an extraordianry image. There are 12 players who can not start and it is important that they also consider the team as theirs.” The Spain coach gave his opinion about the apparent end to the debate over the lack of goals in the team: “The most difficult thing in football is scoring goals, the finalising of the work. Against Turkey we were able to score three goals, but we know that until we start scoring regularly, we will not be considered a very free-scoring side. Just as we are not a defensive team, but we concede very few.”last_img read more

Four reasons Atletico Madrid are struggling to get going

first_img CEST EFE/Sport EN Atletico Madrid have made their worst start to La Liga in Diego Simeone’s era, with two draws in two weeks, against promoted sides. Here are four reasons for their struggles.  Upd. at 13:43 1. They are lacking goals. That is their main worry, with their only strike arriving from the penalty spot.  28/08/2016 2. Lack of accuracy. “This is why we’re not winning games,” said Simeone, speaking about his side’s final balls and passing. The strikers are disconnected from the midfield. 3. Opposition goalkeepers. Fernando Pacheco made a great double save from Kevin Gameiro when Atletico played Alavez, and Jon Ander Serantes was on top form at Butarque as they drew with Leganes. 4. Predictable play in attack. Atletico have found two tight defences that they have not been able to break down. This is nothing new – they’ve suffered that in previous seasons. They had too many central players and not enough capacity to unbalance on the flanks.last_img read more
