Atlético de Madrid right-back Juanfran spoke about the great moment the team is in: “We've been through a bad patch, and we emerged stronger”.
Atleti, impressive against Real Sociedad last night
The team is back at its best…
We went through our bad patch in November-December. Every team goes through ups and downs and it can happen to you at any point in the season. The problem with us is that we have set the bar so high that it might seem that we are immune to bad moments - but every team suffers dips in form and that's when we have to take advantage. The poor run has made us stronger and shows that this Atleti can confront adversity. Let's hope we can keep this up until the last day.
