The International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS) named Diego Pablo Simeone as the best coach of the decade for his records at Atlético de Madrid. The surprise on the list was the Zinedine Zidane's seventh position, surpassed even by Unai Emery. The Sanhedrin debated the merits of two of LaLiga's most successful coaches.
Antonio Romero: “Any coach says that the Champions League is the most difficult competition to win. There is no data more overwhelming than winning three in a row. The neutral fan doesn't get hooked on Cholo football. “
Jordi Martí: “The merit of Simeone is enormous. With a budget that was half that of the greats, Atlético has not stopped showing its head among the elite. Simeone is for Atlético what Cruyff was for Barça“.
Jesus Gallego: “Atlético's midfield against Sevilla was Lemar, Koke, Llorente and Carrasco. It's not defensive at all.”
Miguel Martín Talavera: “Simeone has changed the image of a club. The team did not reach the finals and the Argentine has raised four titles“.
Thebes responds to Zidane
Antonio Romero: “Zidane is within his right to make excuses, but I think you are wrong. I would like to know if Tebas had taken a car from Valladolid to Madrid. Or lies the club or the president of LaLiga he did it today. When do you plan to call Florentino Pérez? “
Jesus Gallego: “We all agreed that the El Sadar grass was optimal for both teams. I think Tebas is wrong answering Zidane. At Real Madrid they want to finish the issue. “
Miguel Martín Talavera: “Thebes should not have gotten into this garden. The man who presides over the football association cannot go on accusing a coach like that.
