Flores warns Atletico: Run or be eaten

MADRID - Atletico Madrid can overturn a 3-0 deficit against Recreativo Huelva to reach the King's Cup quarter-finals if they put in the effort and play with intelligence, coach Quique Sanchez Flores said on Wednesday.

"It's like the law of the jungle: you have to run so that they don't eat you, or run if you want to eat," Sanchez Flores told reporters, ahead of Thursday's last-16 return leg at home to second division Recreativo.

Sanchez Flores criticised his team's attitude after their poor showing in last week's first leg. New loan signing, Portugal midfielder Tiago, has been included in the squad, despite only being presented on Tuesday.
