Atletico Madrid manager, Diego Simeone wanted to explain what kind of players he likes to work with, ahead of the start of the new season.
Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone knows exactly what type of players he likes to work with.
“I like the rebels, the players who are the most difficult to deal with because it’s a challenge to change their mindset so that they can grow in their lives,” he told As.
“Out on the pitch, players behave exactly as they do in life – the selfish player and the generous player are the same on and off the pitch.”
He also explained how to teach footballers to win: “The players are trained so that they can compete.”
“We try to develop players from when they enter the club.”
“Now we have a generational change at Atlético as we have players who have come through the system and who are now established – Giménez, Saúl, Koke, Thomas,” he commented.
“And let’s hope they can transmit their experiences to the next generation who are coming through.”
“Now, they are the ones who have to be the leaders and show the way to the rest,” Simeone concluded.
😇 Thank you very much for your love, Mexico! 😍🇲🇽
