‘Simeone to Inter a matter of time’


Diego Simeone’s agent-sister claims ‘it’s only a matter of time’ before the Atletico Madrid boss moves back to Inter.

Simeone spent two seasons at Inter as a player, winning a UEFA Cup in 1998, and had previously been linked with their coaching position, although the Argentine extended his contract with Atleti to 2020 last year.

“Diego said it too, sooner or later, he’ll end up at Inter,” sibling Natalia told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I think it is only a matter of time. He loves the club, the atmosphere and living in Milan. Inter is a side he would really love to coach.


“I should point out that he is also still very fond of Lazio, too. At the end of the day, passion always wins out.

“Diego has been with Atletico for seven years. He is one of the best Coaches in the world, but he remains when he knows there is still work to be done. And I accompany him.”
