“It will not be easy.  We are not up to par with our opponents.  This is the best Atletico Madrid side that they’ve had in La Liga history and the history of Atletico Madrid is very long.  They’re a very very very difficult opponent and this past week, Arda nor Falcao players and I think they will.   We will try with all of our might and sometimes, surprises happen.

“The team is doing well, but not great.  Yes we got to sixth place and there was no feeling of euphoria.  This Copa match is different than La Liga and to change our ways, we needed to do it earlier.  We don’t have a strong defensive team, like we had before.  We need to get back to that.  I hope we can get Alvaro and Alcacer on a good run of form.  We need to play all out and with energy.”
