- Chronicle: Atlético discovers the solution (2-0)
Jagoba Arrasate, Osasuna coach, did not want to look for excuses in the demolition of Felipe to Darko Brasanac. Unlike. "They were better, Atlético is just the winner," he summed up. However, he revealed what both José Luis Munuera Montero and the fourth referee explained to him about the play: "We were told that my player slipped and that is a lie. We admit the arbitration errors, but not the lie." The VAR also did not move card and the matter was buried after the break.
"Right now we are angry, I have always said that I am in favor (of the VAR). I prefer it to be a mistake to a lie, that seems serious to me. The other, we all have to help it to improve, it will be a process and that with time is as fair as possible. I mean the lie rather than the error, "added the former Numancia coach on the aforementioned controversy, in the 39th minute, with 0-0 on the scoreboard.
Brasanac, on the other hand, was also very explicit about the controversy in the Jan Oblak area. "The referee tells me that the defender touches the ball but the ball is still where I want and I can no longer continue. It is clear that his foot does not let me follow that action," said the Serbian midfielder.
Debut of Manu Sánchez
In addition to the unexpected role of Pablo González Fuertes in the VOR room, the other great protagonists of the night in the Metropolitan were Sergio Herrera and Manu Sánchez. The visiting goalkeeper, with six stops before the break, frustrated Atlético's best attempts and triggered the flattery of Diego Simeone. "The goalkeeper was the best - by far - of the opponent and that speaks for itself of the game we did," said the red and white coach.
Manu Sánchez, meanwhile, debuted on the left-handed side, in the post of the injured Renan Lodi. "Juanfran said goodbye and a boy arrived. Manu loved it, it is not easy, it is a young boy who has been working with us for a long time. He took a step forward, has a good vision of the game," admitted El Cholo, who communicated to the youth player who was going to play at about 6:30 pm.
Shortly afterwards he gave one of the most intense hugs to Juanfran, his old right-back, just before receiving the heat of the Metropolitan. "Football is a matter of which one is forceful," he summed up the first league victory in a month.
