Cholo Simeone, coach of Atlético de Madrid, won his third award for best coach and this time it was thanks to obtaining the league title.
Simeone received the award from José Luis Martínez-Almeida, mayor of the city of Madrid. The 51-year-old Argentine was moved by the speech of the director of the newspaper MARCA, Juan Ignacio Gallardo, who stated: “You are an example of what I understand by soccer”, in addition to appreciating his dedication and commitment.
“I want to thank MARCA for the words, they are very beautiful, they make me more responsible and make me relive all this time at the club. We missed our people in the stadium. We are living a tough, difficult, long, dangerous season because there are very important teams and that made winning La Liga even bigger. I want to share it with the coaching staff, the gratitude to the footballers and the sports management that gives me the opportunity to have good footballers “Simeone said.
