Simeone this celebration today: the Argentine coach turns 51, although it does not do it at a good time. The Athletic fell on Sunday against Athletic, with what his chances of winning the league title they have seen reduced. Simeone has been criticized for the way Atlético approached the match in Bilbao: playing for the championship, the Athletic was more aggressive Y better than the madrileños in the first half. After the break Atlético was better. And when he achieved the most complicated thing, to tie the clash, he returned to put behind again on the scoreboard, this time in a set piece.
Own trainer from Atlético he blamed himself for what happened in the first half against Athletic. It is not the first time that the Madrid team throws the first forty-five minutes, although then reacts after the break. It's something that can't afford the leader in the five games that remain to finalize the championship.
The cholo, however, it has already lived some difficult moments at Atlético. In the Madrid entity they know that the great goal this covered, stay in positions of Champions, and the team continues to depend on itself to win the title. But the rojiblanco team has been deflating in the second round and disappointment has settled among the Wanda Metropolitano fans. Restore confidence lost is now the immediate objective of the coaching staff from Atlético.
The best birthday present for Simeone, already a legend in Atlético, is to take the three points against Elche. Only in this way can he continue to aspire to win LaLiga. Today you can have a little distraction and celebrate your birthday. But you will want to celebrate it big in Elche. Within the rojiblanco dressing room only one word is heard: defeat the Elche team. Elche, Elche and Elche. There's no more. Atlético will train today in the morning session in Majadahonda, so the coach he will face his birthday as one more, asking for the maximum intensity to your players in the work session.
Simeone, on the other hand, that's it planning with the Atlético leaders next season. The idea in the club is not only to continue the 2021-22 exercise but to do so for more years, so that Cholo will be able to continue celebrating his next birthday in the entity of the Metropolitan Wanda.
