Cerezo: Simeone will stay

Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo declared on Monday that the club’s supporters can stop worrying, for Diego Simeone is set to remain at the club.

Following Atletico’s defeat in the Champions League final, the coach’s position within the club has been the subject of uncertainty, and fans have congregated around Estadio Vincente Calderon begging for Simeone to stay.

“Atletico fans can sleep easy because there are still four more years in his contract,” Cerezo said.

“The technical team are working on tweaking the team, but it is going to be practically the same as the one that were runners-up in the Champions League and third in La Liga.”

At the ceremony, Atletico midfielder Saul Niguez won the award for the revelation of the season, but even this was not enough to warrant a place in Spain’s European Championship squad.

“For a quality player it’s always disappointing not to be there, but Saul is going to be part of the national team because he’s a magnificent footballer.”
