“I have nothing to say about my future. It is abundantly clear.”
Simeone is currently preparing his side o face Bayern Munich at the Allianz Areana – where they face Diego’s old foe Carlo Ancelotti, who beat Simeone’s side when he was in-charge of Atleti’s cross-town rivals Real Madrid in the 2014 Champions League final.
Bayern have been struggling for form this season and this could be Simeone’s chance to level the score with Italian tactician.
