Bielsa: Mathematically, we’re not safe

Marcelo Bielsa has warned his Athletic Bilbao team that they are not mathematically safe despite beating Mallorca on Saturday.

Aritz Aduriz and Fernando Llorente gave the Basque side the points that took them up to 14th in the table, nine points above the relegation places.

But the Chilean Coach has insisted that his side are not yet safe.

“Mathematically, our problem has not been resolved,” he told a Press conference.

“The fear of not winning the game created a sense of doubt and instability.

“But emotionally we were able to balance ourselves.

“Mallorca had a very strong willingness to win and offer true resistance.

“But we had the mental strength to win.”
