Bielsa on ‘disappointing’ 2012

Marcelo Bielsa has reflected on Athletic Bilbao's past 12 months as well as revealing his hopes for 2013.

The San Mames side lost in the Copa del Rey final and the Europa League final this year, and the Argentine Coach has admitted that he has been 'disappointed'.

“Losing both finals was really disappointing,” he told a Press conference. “And then being eliminated from the Copa and Europe this season as well.

“So the balance is obviously not so good.

“But we expect to grow and continue to improve the performances that we have shown so far.”

He then commented on this Saturday's match with Real Zaragoza.

“We are going to try and play like we always do,” he said. “Carrying the ball, attacking and trying to dominate possession.

“We need to be good in both areas against Zaragoza because they are very good.”
