Marcelino: ‘We are far from our best version’

Marcelino Garcia Toral could not win his second title as coach of the Athletic after winning the Spain Supercup in January against Barça. This Saturday, the Real society deprived him of another day of glory winning the Cup at La Cartuja in Seville, where the Asturian coach was quite touched. “We have gotten far away from our best version. We must congratulate the Real, see where we have gone wrong and offer solutions to a group that is sunk, but that has to rise. The greatest frustration we are going to have is that it was not us, “he lamented at a press conference.

Marcelino assured that “The result is very hard. I am not disappointed, but I am very sad. We wanted with all our might to win this final. I think we had too much responsibility for winning. We all knew what it meant, ”added the Asturian.

The rojiblanco coach highlighted that “We were not fluent and we lacked decision and initiative. Emotionally we were not at the level of expressing our maximum capacity. Defensively we play with order and La Real gave us few occasionsHe did not do much in the offensive aspect, ”he reiterated.

Marcelino believes that “We should have had more depth, creativity and arrival. Football is decided by minute details and in that, Real has been superior to us. We were very thick with the ball. We were more afraid of losing it than we wanted to play it. We lacked being dynamic and it was difficult for us to create and combine “, analyzed the Asturian, who could not lift his second consecutive Cup after winning it in 2019 with Valencia.
