Honestly I think Simeone is doing everything he can to force Fernando out in January by not playing him, if not for a few minutes, because he is the only striker currently at Atletico that started only once and I don’t really think that the others (not including Griezmann) are better than him.
It reminds me of Totti’s situation last year at Roma.
+ I’m here a bit forced to come, to be honest I don’t want to answer to any question but I have to do it. Football now is like… I don’t care about the result or about how we played, I care about Fernando’s health.
- Sometimes football is irrelevant and this one seems like one of them. + Yes, as I said before, I don’t care about the result. You can ask me a thousand questions about the match that I will answer unwillingly. Now let’s see what happens with Fernando, I hope he’s ok and that’s all. I hope he comes back with us soon.
- How was the locker room right now? + In silence, nobody wanted to talk. Some were in the shower, others with their heads low for what happened but not for the result.
