Diego Simeone is a smart guy.
The Argentine has showcased his footballing knowledge in recent seasons, and Atletico Madrid have reaped the rewards.
If anyone is qualified to talk football management, it’s Simeone, and that’s why these recent comments from the Atletico boss are such a compliment for his Chelsea counterpart Antonio Conte.
During his pre-match press conference, Simeone was asked who was the better coach out of the two influential figures. His answer was a straightforward one – Conte. Respect!
