Back at Atletico Madrid, Axel Witsel gave an interview to Eleven Sports. More than a month after the World Cup failed by the Red Devils in Qatar, the Colchonero returned to this failure which marked many Belgian players.
He explains at the microphone of Eleven Sports: “It is part of our world. We have to deal with it. Although sometimes it’s not always fair.
Because after the draw against Croatia, synonymous with elimination, the player wanted to immerse himself in his bubble: “It was a big disappointment. We always have family, friends who send messages, who call. When you lose like that and you are eliminated, it’s a moment during which you want to stay a little in your bubble. A moment of reflection. You don’t necessarily want to talk to too many people so that’s why it was a little hard for three or four days. »
And to conclude: “We must also for our clubs to get back directly into it”.
This Sunday, Atletico receives FC Barcelona in the shock of the 16th day in La Liga.
