China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

Ar­gen­tine coach Diego Sime­one will re­main at Atletico Madrid next sea­son, the club’s chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Miguel An­gel Gil Marin said on Tues­day.

Sime­one, 46, signed a con­tract ex­ten­sion in 2015 that tied him to the club un­til June 2020, an un­usu­ally long deal by Span­ish stan­dards.

In Septem­ber, Sime­one re­duced the deal to 2018, spark­ing spec­u­la­tion that he may leave.

Asked about Sime­one’s fu­ture, Gil Marin said he will stay at Atletico “this sea­son and the next for sure”.

“He has been with us for five years and it would be rea­son­able if he stayed with us
