Koke: ‘Atletico Madrid drawing too many games’

Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke believes his side’s title challenge is being derailed by drawing too many matches.

Los Rojiblancos draw at Girona on Sunday was their third in their last four outings and their seventh in La Liga this season, meaning they now trail leaders Barcelona by three points.

“Drawing matches is not enough for us,” Koke told BeIn Sports after the match.

“We need to start picking up victories because one point is not sufficient, especially after we only drew at home to Barcelona in our previous game.

“We must keep working hard and try to do better in front of goal, to be more clinical.

“We have played very well here but when you go a goal down after losing possession, it is frustrating – especially just before half-time

“But there is belief that if we keep working hard in front of goal and fighting for each other we will turn our luck around and start scoring more goals.”
