Marcelino: Simeone an example to follow

Villarreal has praised Diego Simeone, admitting that the Argentine Coach is ‘an example to follow’.

The Yellow Submarine play the capital club tomorrow evening, and the promoted side’s tactician has conceded that his opposite number is performing miracles.

“Simeone is a great Coach,” he told a Press conference. “Cholo has instilled a philosophy that has got Atleti competing for titles with Madrid and Barcelona.

“He is an example to follow. They are getting closer and closer to competing on an equal footing with the big two.

“We know that if we don’t match their intensity, then Atleti will win. Without intensity it is impossible to win.

“I think as a group Atleti are probably the best in the League, but it’s going to be a great game.”
