Tiago Mendes insists “I have no doubt that Diego Simeone will stay with us” after Atletico Madrid’s defeat to Real in the Champions League final.

Simeone hinted after the penalties loss in Milan that he would consider his future at Atleti, but Tiago made it clear he did not envisage the Coach leaving any time soon as Diego Godin did his best to remain upbeat.

“I have no doubt that Simeone will stay with us,” the midfielder said after the game.

Godin added: “The blow is hard to take, but we’ll get up. We always have. We’re very proud of what we did this season.

“Our efforts were impressive, but it couldn’t be crowned with a victory. Still, this is football so we’ll look for another opportunity.

“This is a winning group. I’m very proud of my teammates and we’ll continue fighting for our objectives, so we’ll keep dreaming.”
