Matthew: “The Efes? Our goal is not to eliminate people”

Chus Mateo, coach of Real Madrid, described as “important” the match against Anadolu Efes, this Tuesday in Istanbul, but he scrapped the idea of ​​”cutting people out of the playoff equation” to focus on his team. “It’s an important game, on a difficult pitch and against the defending champion. We are looking forward to continue adding to get to the playoffs first and then get home field advantagesaid Matthew.

The match, suspended at the time due to the great earthquake that devastated Turkey and Syria, It comes with more pressure for the Ottomans who have the less complicated classification. “Our objective is not to beat the European champion and leave him shaking. It is a good game for us to come out stronger, but not to eliminate people from the playoff equation, ”he explained. Regarding the available players, Guerschon Yabusele travels but not Nigel Williams-Goss.

“Nigel is not going to travel. He has a groin tear and for a couple of days we won’t know if he’s grade 1 or 2. He’s going to travel to Yabusele, but I don’t know if he’ll be able to play. Injuries disrupt plans, but player ins and outs complicate things“Matthew pointed out. This Tuesday will be the team’s sixth game in twelve days.

“It is what it is, We cannot stop to think that the load of games is great and that some players have been injured by this load. Against Bilbao we had the chance for some players to become important. We try not to go crazy with this schedule,” he observed. “We try to focus on the next game, having little time to train and trying to take advantage of the games to improve things”, added the Real Madrid coach.

The coach was asked about Carlos Alocén, who was injured -torn anterior cruciate ligament of the left knee- on February 13, 2022.He has been working for more than a year but has had to stop at some point. In the mentality of the medical and technical staff is that he recovers well. You have to be patient and not set dates. Carlos and Anthony Randolph we hope they recover as soon as possible, ”he commented. Anadolu Efes also seem to have injury problems with Vasilije Micic, Shane Larkin and Rodrigue Beaubois between cottons.

“We think they will all be there. It is a champion team and you don’t have to think about their casualties. We do not value if they are touched or not. We know how this works and more with Anadolu Efes”, said Chus Mateo.
