Diego Simeone Signs New Three Year Extension

The coach of Atletico Madrid, Diego Simeone has agreed to extend his contract with the Spanish champions by three years to 2020. Announced on the Twitter feed of the champions, the deal was widely expected although there was plenty of speculations a European rival could try to lure SImoene leave the club.

His decision to stay until 2020 is a big and influential statement from Simeone, who has been drawing admiring glances for his achievements in the Spanish capital on a meagre budget.

Simeone has transformed Atletico since taking the club over at the end of 2011, showing his wonderful coaching strategy by bringing the team to the leaf of their first domestic league title in 18 years last term and putting Atletico Madrid back among Europe’s elite. He has overseen a consistently strong challenge to the duopoly of Barcelona and Real Madrid.

At the end of Simeone’s debut season, Atletico won the Europe League and reached the final of the Champions League in 2013-14 where they lost 4-1 to Real Madrid after extra time. Atletico Madrid thrashed Chelsea 4-1 to claim the 2012 European Super Cup, winning the King’s Cup a year later by beating Real in the final and defeated their neighbors over two legs to secure the Spanish Super Cup in last August.

The defending Spanish champions who finished runners-up in last year Champions League are currently sitting in the fourth position in La Liga, nine points off the leaders, Barcelona. However, Simeone told a news conference following the signing of the new deal, “I have chosen to be here because I am convinced the club will continue to grow.”

Meanwhile, shortly after he announced his new deal, Manchester City sources categorically denied that Atletico Madrid had made a bid for Simeone’s services or that they were interested. The Atletico Madrid coach’s impact has also been felt in Europe, with his side winning the Europa League in 2012.

“Ahead of us we can look forward to a new stadium, there is a great deal of excitement,” he said. “Fortunately I have been able to make this decision as I see a club that is moving forward. We all love Atletico Madrid, and we all want to grow together. Enrique Cerezo, the club president, echoed those sentiments, “nobody embodies the values of our clubs more than Simeone.” According to him, Simeone has been showing his passion, effort, nobility, work, solidarity, courage, and heart; and he “gave himself body and soul in the defense of Atletico colors.”
