However, the team is delighted with its coach and, according to ‘Marca’, the management is already working on his renewal.
Diego Pablo Simeone can be proud of what he has achieved at Atlético since he arrived in 2011. He has changed the history of the club and has broken countless records… and is coming for those that remain.
At Atlético they are confident that they will have the manager for a while longer. His current contract still has two years left but the club is looking at the long term.
They do not contemplate having any coach other than Simeone. Therefore, at Atlético they are working on his continuity beyond 2022, assures ‘Marca’.
Atlético has a year and a half to convince ‘Cholo’. The coach is happy and content in the club that he loves. He will have the last word.
In all these years, the only thing that Simeone has asked to remain in charge is a quality squad to fight for everything. From the day he arrived he said it clearly: he wanted to upset the big boys. He has succeeded.
His sister, Natalia Simeone, will be in charge of his future. She is his representative and will be the one to give voice to Cholo’s demands if there are any.
Marca claims that this idea of renewing Simeone has nothing to do with the lost derby and Simeone taking the blame. For a few weeks now, explains the media, the management has been moving with the firm objective of renewing its strength, Diego Pablo Simeone.
