Simeone: The battle for third is tough - but I like it
Diego Simeone believes the fight for third place in La Liga has become extremely difficult for Atletico Madrid - but he is happy to see more competition in the league.
"It's complicated because Valencia and Sevilla have grown a lot since last season," he told reporters. "Villarreal have continued their upward trend and that is good for competition in La Liga. Hopefully over the course of the next few games, at the end of the season, we will be closer."
