The presence of Ronaldo Nazario on the grass of Zorrilla in the minutes before the match sparked euphoria in the stands. The man is considered as an active revitalizing that same talk with the props, which revises the bench or is left to shoot with field operatives. That happiness of the bloated local, turned into bitterness, and in a strong rebuke to the collegial. When Undiano left the field of play, the stands erupted over what they considered a use of the VAR-discriminatory basis, in a hand of colombian Arias.
The same contrariety moved to the press room, Sergio Gonzalez. For the coach of Valladolid, the system was not applied equally. “The VAR it leaves me with a feeling rare: in your plays, the referee, yes I wanted to review, and in our not. You don't know who's in charge, if the referee up, or down. I think that we deserve the same conditions that the rest of the teams. There are times in which we are not been treated as other,” claimed the technical blanquivioleta, who said that his team “was better”.
Minutes before, Simeone had toned a story gasp, as the victory of his team: “we Needed to win out. We were suffering from any injury that does not allow us to have people fresh to rotate as we would like.” Atletico had only won Getafe at home before winning with suffering in Zorrilla. “After the 2-2 we showed strength, when any other team would have finished losing the game. The first goal gave them energy and the second came very quickly. The one who receives the two goals so quickly, normally, runs against the ropes, but we are still zafándonos, and still gave us to throw in some pineapple more as it says in the slang of the boxing,” explained Simeone, who pointed out to Griezmann as decisive for the team finish with the boot: “He knows the place that has in football, he has earned it, with a lot of effort, nobody has gotten anything. It is decisive”.
The French met 300 matches in total in Laliga and with the 85 goals he has scored with the Athletic competition becomes the top scorer foreigner in the club's history. After the meeting, was presented before the press to reinforce the message from his coach that football is work and effort. “Suffering always. From the first year that I arrived here, we have suffered, and will continue to suffer and you have to like to suffer. We have to like be back to steal balls and work”. On the VAR, Griezmann said: “it Is long until that's decided, but it was fair. The VAR is a good thing, especially when you're going well”, he concluded.
