Why I will never coach Real Madrid – Diego Simeone


Atletico Madrid Coach, Diego Simeone has said he will never manage fierce La Liga rivals, Real Madrid.

Simeone, regarded as one of the world’s best coaches, says he would never take charge of Los Blancos.

The 46-year-old has been in charge at Atletico since 2011 and has developed into one of the world’s most highly rated coaches.

The Argentine gaffer has led Atletico to Europa Cup victory, a league title and numerous cups, and has reached two Champions League finals.

Although he may be wanted by numerous European giants, Simeone said coaching Real Madrid was out of the question.

He told Ondo Cero, “I will never coach Real Madrid. “It is logical because of feelings. They wouldn’t call me either.

“I am young, maybe someday I will lead another Spanish team.” He, however, reiterated his desire to one day coach the national team.

He added, “At some point, I would like to coach Argentina, but I have to improve as a coach.

“I would like to do it in the final stretch of my career.
