Emery: “We put in a complete performance”

The Villarreal head coach underlined the positive image shown against the league leaders

Satisfied, but not with the result. Villarreal head coach Unai Emery underlined that his team put in a good performance against Atlético de Madrid despite the final 0-2 result. “We can’t avoid the result. From there, you look at how you want to get a result. We put in an extremely complete performance, and we just lacked accuracy in both areas. That’s the path to follow. In the first half, we had a lot to control and we had a few clear chances. They scored in an isolated action. In the second half, we started with a few doubts, and then they scored their second. From then on, in the last 30 minutes, we created a lot of chances, but we didn’t take them,” he analysed.

For the Basque manager, this result shouldn’t lower the team’s morale: “If you lose like that, you need to look beyond the result. We did a lot of things very well. We had control, you could see our ideas and we continue moving forward. We need to be more competitive in a few details throughout the 90 minutes.
