Admittedly, Atletico Madrid were anxious in recent years as their manager Diego Simeone said he wanted to deal with one of his two former clubs in Italy, Inter Milan and Lazio in the future. In fact, according to the news heard, the discourse of Simeone’s recruitment by Inter Milan is likely to occur in the transfer market next summer. Regarding this speculation, Atletico Madrid’s President, Enrique Cerezo admitted he was sure that the Argentine coach would not leave his club.
Diego Simeone, 48, has been handling Atletico Madrid since 2011, where since then the coach nicknamed El Cholo managed to bring Los Rojiblancos to a number of brilliant achievements in all competitions. Naturally, the figure of Diego Simeone is now regarded as one of the best managers in the past few years, and it is understood that he is wanted by a number of European giants, including among them, Inter Milan.
Inter Milan themselves have not found a balance, they even managed to qualify for the European Champions League for the first time in the last six seasons. La Beneamata even had time to express their interest in the Argentine manager who in fact was one of their former players. While on the one hand, Simeone also had time to express his desire to return to the former club that had raised his name as a player.
Last summer, Simeone was linked close to Inter Milan, but eventually the person chose to stay at Wanda Metropolitano. Even so, reportedly El Cholo still open the opportunity to Inter Milan next season. Regarding this issue, Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has no doubt about Simeone’s commitment with his club.
“I am always confident and believe that El Cholo is the best coach for Atletico. He will continue with us for years to come,” Cerezo said confidently, as quoted by the US.
Starting to lead since December 2011, this Argentine coach has gone through 404 matches in all competitions with good statistics. Atletico took 250 wins and only lost 66 times. Throughout this period Simeone successfully presented one La Liga title, one Copa del Rey, one Spanish Super Cup, two Europa League trophies, two European Super Cups, and twice brought Los Colchoneros to the Champions League final.
