Atlético Madrid lost 2-1 against RB Leipzig yesterday and was therefore unable to qualify for the semi-final of the Champions League. Diego Simeone is not spared in the Spanish press.
Diego Simeone has been able to celebrate many successes as coach of Atlético Madrid. For example, he won the Europa League and the Spanish title with the Madrid club. Yesterday’s elimination against ‘small’ Leipzig is undoubtedly one of the lows in the trainer career of The cholo.
According to the Spanish sports newspaper Brand – and more specifically journalist Álvaro Roca – can we place the Atlético of Simeone in the row of the Barcelona of Johan Cruyff, the AC Milan of Arrigo Sachi, the Manchester United of Sir Alex Ferguson and the Real Madrid of Vicente del Bosque. So nice words from Roca, but he is also tough and thinks that change is needed: “A different course must be steered. The rudder must be changed and another captain must come on the ship.” Wondering if Atlético will say goodbye to his beloved success coach.
POLL: Will Simeone have to pay the bill for the CL shutdown?
