Javier Clemente never cuts himself. The former national coach spoke on ‘Radio Marca’ about the current situation in the League and did so, as usual, openly. The Basque focused on analyzing Atlético de Madrid after their defeat against Athletic, a game that has revolutionized the head of LaLiga, which now it is in the hands of the duel between the colchoneros and FC Barcelona.
“You think that two and two are four and it is not like that. Luis Aragones He already said that the first round is to get into position, the beginning of the second is to be taking positions and in the last 10 games the championship is won. It turns out that Atleti goes like a cane in the first round and suddenly leaves it. They fight and forget to play, “said Clemente.
“Atleti came out like a chicken without a head, as Toshack said. A lot of fight in the dispute, a lot of fighting in crashes, but when they caught the ball they were enlarged: very slow, predictable, little movement … a gifted first part, I was disappointed in that sense, “added the coach.
For Clemente it is essential that a team be strong in defense, but, in his words “they forgot the other side, that in addition to fighting, you have to play well.”
LaLiga, of which five days remain, it’s tighter than ever, with Atlético, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Sevilla in just three points and with duels between them in the decisive days.
