Simeone explains his football philosophy

According to Atletico Madrid manager, Diego Simeone, his style of play is very defined and says it has developed better over time.

Atletico Madrid had a fantastic pre-season, where the team won every single match is played.

And now, as the 2019-2020 Spanish La Liga approaches, manager Diego Simeone wanted to explain his style of play.

“We have a very defined style, one which we have developed in a more visible way at other clubs,” he explained to As.

“At Estudiantes, we implemented that style and it worked well – at Atletico Madrid too.”

“I believe that the core essence of the team is fully understood by everyone – a child, a club employee or an old man… all of them know that they are going to see a strong, intense team,” he continued.

“That is a principle which needs to be shaped and looked after, and the very essence has nothing to do with the way the team plays.”

“Even with the best players around that shouldn’t change but it’s something can strengthen with the players we have right now,” he said.

“When coaches arrive at a club, we need to understand its history. If we don’t understand it, then we are destined to have a bad time. If I don’t feel that spirit, I leave.”

“From the first moment you accept to join a club, the best thing you can do and the most respectful thing to do is ask yourself: ‘What is the history behind this club?’,” he concluded.
