Atleti expect Simeone stay

Atletico Madrid are reportedly confident Diego Simeone will remain at the club and have been planning next season for four months.

Los Colchoneros Champions League Final defeat to Real Madrid raised the spectre of Cholo leaving as he took the loss to heart and he hinted at a post-match Press conference that his future might be away from Vicente Calderon.

But AS reports that Atletico are of the opinion that defeat in Milan doesn’t have to change anything about the club’s structure and with contracts for existing players already being renewed and new signings finalised, Simeone is staying.

Simeone, President Enrique Cerezo and CEO and owner Miguel Angel Gil Marin are also said to maintain a good relationship, which will lead to the Coach continuing in his post.
