Simeone has the coronavirus, he will lead Atletico Madrid from a distance.
Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone tested positive for coronavirus. This was announced by the Spanish club with an official statement.
Simeone – who tested negative last Thursday – is asymptomatic and is in isolation. The coach, as happened with Mihajlovic in recent weeks, will lead the team from a distance.
Cholo are preparing to start their tenth season on the Atletico Madrid bench.
Simeone is a flag of this club since he also saw the red and white shirt as a footballer from 1994 to 1997 and from 2003 to 2005. As a player he won a Scudetto and a Spanish Cup with Atletico.
As a coach he did even better. In fact, Cholo has won a Scudetto, a Spanish Cup, a Spanish Super Cup, two Europa League and two European Super Cup.
In other words, Simeone is missing only the Champions League and the Club World Cup.
Obviously, to participate in the Club World Cup it is necessary to win the Champions League first.
As mentioned, Simeone has not yet managed to accomplish this feat but he came really close.
In fact, the Atletico Madrid coach lost two Champions League finals.
In those editions, Atletico were capable of extraordinary feats, such as when they eliminated, against all odds, Barcelona but in the end had to surrender to the Real Madrid class of Cristiano Ronaldo (source Ansa ).
