Bielsa: I can deal with this

Marcelo Bielsa has defended his position as Athletic Bilbao boss after his side slumped to a 3-1 defeat against Real Sociedad.

The San Mames side lost at home to their Basque rivals as they went down to their 13th loss of the campaign.

And the Argentine Coach has admitted that he was disappointed with the defeat, but has claimed that he can overcome these difficulties.

“I do not like to boast about my own strengths, but I know what is happening and I can deal with it completely,” he told a Press conference.

“I have been in this job for 30 years, so nothing here is new. I've been through this sort of thing countless times before.

“I have nothing to say about the game. I've said all I have to say many times this season. We played well in the first half and then just stopped in the second.”
