Atletico Madrid Coach Diego Simeone has revealed he will ‘never’ manage Real Madrid but could see himself as a boss elsewhere in Spain.
The 46-year-old has established himself as a hugely popular boss at Los Rojiblancos but his future has been under scrutiny of late, with a return to Inter Milan – where he once played – rumoured as a future career move.
"I will never coach Real Madrid," Simeone told Onda Cero.
"It is logical because of feelings. They wouldn't call me either.
"I am young, maybe someday I will lead another Spanish team.
“At some point, I would like to coach Argentina, but I have to improve as a coach, I would like to do it in the final stretch of my career, if they will still have me.
"When I go to the movies, I end up sitting there and thinking about where we need to attack better, which players I should put together, how to calm a player down and which players I need to speak with.
"I have trouble sleeping and when I wake up my whole body hurts. I'll sleep for 15 minutes and then be wide awake. When we win but we have played poorly, I get in a bad mood."
