Simeone: With Suarez in the team, Atletico Madrid have to provide for him
Diego Simeone has hinted that he could be tempted to play more attacking football at Atletico Madrid. The Argentine coach has sometimes been criticised for his cautious approach, especially since the arrivals of the likes of Joao Felix.
Luis Suarez is the latest bit of attacking talent to be added to the Atletico squad, with the Uruguayan set to return to the team against Lokomotiv Moscow on Tuesday.
«Everything is generated by the presence of Suarez,» Simeone said when asked about the impressive recent performances of Joao Felix and Angel Correa in attack. «[Suarez’s presence] means we have to supply him.
«[Diego] Costa and [Alvaro] Morata had other characteristics. Luis needs to have more people around him and to be where he knows he’s going to do damage.
«Evidently, Suarez’s characteristics generates this worry for us to make the most of his characteristics. We played a different way with [Radamel] Falcao, the same with Costa and, with Suarez, we have to adapt to another situation.
«The characteristics of your players always show you the way as a coach when looking to make the most of your team. I don’t talk about what could happen because football is very dynamic and each game is different.
«We’re going to stick with our game-by-game [philosophy] and, based on what we see in training, we’ll look to play in the way that we need to.»
Atletico will be looking for a win when they face Lokomotiv on Tuesday in order to strengthen their position in their Champions League group.
«We’re going up against a very competitive team,» Simeone added. «Apart from four draws from their last 14 games, the defeats weren’t by more than one goal.
«They’re always competitive games and we have to go back 15 matches to find a 2-0 defeat for Lokomotiv. They know how to compete and we’ll have to take the game where we can do the most damage.»
