The Atlético de Madrid president backed the Argentine technical director after criticism due to the defeat against Leipzig in the Champions League.
The president of Athletic of Madrid, Enrique Cerezo, came out in defense of Diego Simeone after the unexpected elimination before Leipzig by Champions League. The authority of the mattress team believes that the club had a good season and that Cholo must continue.
“Why is he untouchable? The one who makes the line-ups is him. Whoever discusses the line-up should buy a team, make a team and make them himself,” said the Atleti president in dialogue with Mediaset.
And he added: “I think we have had a very good season, we have qualified for the Champions League, we have been among the first three and we have reached the quarterfinals of the Champions League, which is not silly.”
Finally, Cerezo concluded: “People are annoyed, it’s wrong because the truth is that we didn’t expect that result. Soccer is like this, these things happen and that’s how we are. We didn’t have our night. Now we have to get up.”
