berizzo addresses stepping down as struggling athletic lose again

Athletic Bilbao coach Eduardo Berizzo spoke about standing down from his position after his team were beaten 3-0 by Levante in Spain's La Liga on Monday.

Chema Rodriguez opened the scoring for Levante on 49 minutes. Jose Campana made it two 10 minutes later, with Roger Marti completing the rout in the 69th.

The victory saw Levante move up to sixth in the table. Athletic, who also had Peru Nolaskoain sent off, remain third from bottom.

"I feel responsible. I think we work hard but we find ourselves in an unfortunate situation, Berizzo said. "If the best thing for the team is that I stand down then I would contemplate that."

Asked if he had already considered quitting, he replied: "So far I have only thought about the game. If my resignation serves some purpose then that is what will be."

Athletic have only won one game all season.

"I would like to tell my players to be positive and that will have its reward. Together we can turn the situation around," Berizzo added.
