Earthquake in sight at Atletico Madrid

Earthquake in sight at Atletico Madrid

The Madrid club should experience a very eventful next summer. Diego Simeone would indeed have decided to leave his post, more than ten years after his arrival.

This is a decision that is likely to make a lot of noise within the Kingdom of Spain. According to information gathered by The Chiringuito, Diego Simeone should indeed know his last months on the Colchoneros bench. If this decision was somewhat expected, it would still mark the end of a great era.

The Argentine coach has held this position since December 19, 2011. With Atletico Madrid, Diego Simeone can therefore boast of having spent an entire decade in a first-class club, a real feat in modern football. During his tenure, El Cholo will have had moments of glory with the title won in La Liga during the 2020-2021 season. The Reds and Whites will also have reached the Champions League final twice (2014 and 2016), without ever winning the trophy.

A problem-free end to the season?

If Diego Simeone’s very little attacking game has often been criticized, the latter will nonetheless remain a legendary figure in the history of the Madrid team. In recent months, the need for change seemed to be felt all the same. The hypothesis of a departure had already been mentioned during the last summer transfer window. Finally, the 52-year-old technician had remained well.

This time, however, the end would be very near. Current fifth in La Liga, theAtlético Madrid is five points behind on the podium. Barça and Real Madrid, respectively 1st and second, seem however unattainable unless a totally crazy comeback from Antoine Griezmann and his partners. It will also be recalled that the Colchoneros were eliminated from the Champions League in the group stage. Last in their group, the Castilians will not even have the opportunity to console themselves with the Europa League
