Simeone ‘staying at Atletico’
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.
