“We know that the records are not decisive,” he told a Press conference. “The only thing that concerns we is the game tomorrow.

“Espanyol are a tough opponent and are playing the way their Coach wants them to. They’ve shifted styles and a starting well.

“I imagine it’ll be a tough game against a team that will press us hard.”

Simeone then commented on Diego Costa’s international future, insisting that the striker is just focusing on playing well for his club.

“This is just a part of football. He can’t worry about all this. Diego isn’t constantly thinking about what’s being written in the papers.

“He is working well, and that’s the most important thing. “
