Simeone: Substitutes Made The Difference For Atletico

Diego Simeone has hailed the impact of the substitutes for Atletico in the 1-0 win over Alaves.

Fernando Torres was the hero for Atletico in a tough encounter against Alaves, coming off the bench to score the only goal.

Correa came on and gave Atletico more attacking impetus, and the winner came after the introduction of Carrasco and Torres.

“The team improved with the changes,” said Simeone. “It is important to have the group as it is. The guys who are not playing have done very well and have shown it.

“We have room for improvement. People want to keep growing and that is good as a team. What has happened is left behind.

“We are pleased with the squad because it was important. We’re now working for the games ahead, which will be as difficult as today.”
