Felipe Monteiro says Atletico Madrid's current woes is not of Diego Simeone's making.
Rojiblancos failed to return to winning ways when they hosted Leganes on Sunday afternoon as they played out a goalless draw at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Despite their underwhelming form of late that has seen Atleti extend their winless streak to four games, the 30-year-old has asked for patience.
The defender said as Marca quoted: "It's not Simeone's fault.
"We are united and it's not a case of finding guilty parties or singling out names.
"We're a young team, we've only been together for six months.
"Everyone knows we're failing and we have to improve."
Next up for Atletico Madrid is LaLiga leaders Real Madrid in the derby.
