Diego Simeone’s chapter on the bench of Atletico Madrid is coming to an end, this is confirmed by the journalists of El Chiringuitos in Spain, who report that the Argentinian coach has decided to leave.
According to the media in question, the 2-year-old Simeone had a meeting with the president of “Los Colchoneros”, Miguel Angel Gil Marin, to whom he informed that at the end of the season he will definitely leave “Wanda Metropolitana”.
Simeone’s decision seems to have come after the poor results that the team has received in the last two seasons, while even in this current one, Atletico seems to be unable to compete with the pair of Barcelona and Real Madrid.
The Argentinian himself seems to have understood that his time in Madrid is over and wants to leave in time, to leave good memories, but also to try another experience, in another championship.
Diego Simeone took charge of Atletico Madrid on December 23, 2011, replacing Gregorio Manzano, and has since opened a very successful cycle at the capital club, having brought important trophies such as the La Liga title twice, twice the Europa League, twice the European Super Cup, once the King’s Cup, once the Spanish Super Cup and twice sent the team to the final of the Champions League.
