AthleticTOExfutbolistas of the stature of Clemente and Urzaiz go over everything that surrounds the Bilbao team
ANDAthletic Club goes through its most complicated situation in recent years. The poor results of the team make the lions occupy one of the three descent places. This slump has ended up costing Berizzo when the elections for the presidency of the club have not been carried out yet. The morale of the staff is low at this time, which has not helped the dismissal of a technician who had the absolute support of the costumes. Five ex-players and ex-coaches of Athletic analyze in MARCA the current situation of the bilbanos.
1. TeamIt is a complicated situation, but within the bad we must think that we are still in December, that there is a lot of time ahead and a lot of room to correct.
2. Berizzo.It is one of the measures that are usually taken in this type of situation and although Athletic usually has more patience, it is clear that taking so many days without winning and seeing you in relegation places is an unwritten law.
3. Descent.When you are the first third of the season in that position it is clear that you run the risk, but I see the Athletic staff better than many who are ahead in the classification. That and that much remains ahead has to reassure us.
1. TeamDelicate. They are having a bad time.
2. Berizzo.I do not like the dismissals of the coaches, but when the situation is bad and the team does not react, the clubs opt for the coach's dismissal. It is a situation that I, as a coach, believe that there are times when it is necessary to do it, what I do not like about these subjects is routine. Hopefully for good. I think Berizzo is a good guy, but Athletic is a very special club and it's more complicated than another team. I think it's a special club that Berizzo has found difficult.
3. Descent.There have already been clubs that have descended and Athletic is one of them. It means that football is difficult and complicated, so nobody is exempt from the decline. What happens in Bilbao is difficult because of the magnitude of the public.
1. TeamIt's a complicated situation, we're not going to be fooled. It has passed a third of the championship and being down is not the best indicator.
2. Berizzo.In the end we already know that the rope always breaks on the coach's side. Little more I can say, let's hope it's for the best.
3. Descent.I am optimistic. If you think only about the descent, in the end it happens. I think that this team has always rowed together, even in very complicated situations. I have been in them and we have gone ahead. This time it has to be the same.
1. TeamDelicate. You are in relegation places, yesterday you receive a setback in Levante and although there are many days ahead I am optimistic, but I will not deny that the situation is delicate.
2. Berizzo.It's the norm of football, when something does not work it's the coaches who pay the duck. I say we are because I am in that guild right now. It is a decision that could be made given the tendency of the team in the last time. Even when the players relied a lot on the coach, which I know, a decision has been made that may be normal within football, because when things do not work you have to change something.
3. Descent.Whenever you are in these positions there is a real risk of descent. This I believe is a reality and can be verified. I also understand that Athletic has the capacity to be able to get out of there. There are many days ahead and I am optimistic as long as players have the ability to leave where they are now.
1. TeamI'm worried like most fans. I think we have a template to be above, but things have not come from the beginning. They have entered into a very negative dynamic. It's a shame what happened, but we hope that Berizzo's elimination will be effective and Gaizka Garitano will have the luck to take the team out of a very committed situation.
2. Berizzo.It seems to me that football is so and when there are no results, even though Athletic has always been reluctant to do without coaches, I think it is a norm that exists in football. When things do not go well and the dynamics are negative, especially when you are in decline and three points out of there. I think it's something that has had to be hard for Josu Urrutia, but I hope it's the best for Athletic.
3. Descent.I think not because it's a good template. As I believe a lot in this squad and in the players that there are, I do not have the worry of the descent. I've never had it, but I do not like to see them so low. I insist, I think they have a template to be higher.
