Jose Luis MendelbarTechnical SevilleHe was very satisfied with the performance of his players in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals European League I played tonight in Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Before Manchester United (3-0) in which the Neurons managed to reach the semi-finals of the continental championship. This is how you rate the party at Mics Movistar Champions League.
How do you feel after what you experienced today?
“Let’s see, well… grateful to have this opportunity to play the quarter-finals against United. Even though we were in small teams, when given the choice we can train these kind of footballers. And I thank you above all the players. Because they are engineers.” All of this.They believe what you ask of them.The coach’s job is to have the group believe in what you tell them.And it was seen on the first goal being a steal in the opposite area.The disallowed goal was also a steal in the opposite half.That’s what we have to do with this kind of players.”
How do you feel before this match?
“You get the feeling of arriving at the stadium with all the people supporting you, the start of the game with the national anthem and the stands full… It’s a feeling that they’re going to help you and in that sense we’ve strengthened, we’ve grown, we thought we could beat Manchester United. We were able, we won 3-0 and in that sense we have to.” Players keep going: faith, faith, faith, faith.”
Did you expect such a comfortable win?
“Of course not, my idea is that it will be a tight game that won’t be decided until the last minute, look, we’ve been silent for the last 12 minutes with the score at 3-0. If they said before the game, don’t think so, but it’s appreciated.”
What gave the locker room?
“Simplicity, I fancy it. I don’t know, I don’t ask for strange things. To some it would be a compliment, and to others if you spoke that nobody understood you, it would be a compliment. I am who I am and I won’t change. I’ve been on teams of many categories, I’ve I started in the regionals and now I’m in the semi-finals of the Europa League with a very good team and I’ve always been like that. Above all, simplicity, for me is one of the most important things in football.”
Juventus in the semi-finals
“Very different from Manchester, it’s more boisterous, more team, it doesn’t have as much joy and speed as those, but maybe it could be more team and maybe it’s more difficult.”
Is it one of the happiest days of your life?
“Yes, yes, of course, that hasn’t come before. It’s a very happy day and I hope it won’t be the last.”
