There must have been a lot of difficulties there, but they functioned very well as a team and played a lot even when they didn’t have the ball, so I would like to congratulate the K League All-Stars for winning today.”
When asked if he talked to any of the players after the game, he said, “I didn’t talk to them much. In the first half, we talked a little bit, but I didn’t have a special conversation with any Korean players. If I talk about 토토사이트 the feeling I got, I felt that as a team we have a very high level of players, and I think it was a good experience for the Korean players, because Atletico is a team that is going to the Champions League. It’s just one game, but I think it’s a good experience because you can be competitive when you come to Europe later on based on what you played.”
