NEWS | 02/12/2017“We had Athletic penned in until Ramos was sent off”, insisted Isco.
"What I take away from here are the chances we created and now we must keep working. We all want to play, we have a great squad with talented players and we showed that today. We played well but couldn't get the win".
Isco: "We kept going right until the end"
"We created a fair few chances but we lacked a bit of accuracy with our shooting and the final ball. That’s perhaps what's letting us down this season in LaLiga. You can't take anything away from this team today. We deserved to win. It was a strong all-round performance and we had Athletic penned in until Ramos was sent off".
"We kept plugging away right until the end and it's disappointing because this was a chance to have made up some points on the teams above us. We're not getting that rub of the green this season which you always need in football. We have to keep working and we can still cut the gap at the top before the end of the calendar year".
Keylor Navas: "We gave our all out there"
"We put in a good performance. Unfortunately we aren't coming away with the three points, which is what we set out to do, but we kept going until the end. We head home feeling down because we haven’t won the game, but we gave our all out there. We deserved to get the win. We put in a massive effort, but we have to move on because there's still a long way to go. The goals will come and we must keep on working".
"It was a good chance for us to reduce the gap, but there's nothing we can do about it now, we haven't got time to be feeling sorry for ourselves. We'll have to be better prepared in the future if we want to be in with a chance of winning the title come the end of the season. I'm happy and relaxed about things. I'm pleased to be playing in LaLiga and at stadiums like this one. I always try to enjoy myself because nobody knows quite what the future holds".
