Atletico Madrid Manager Diego Simeone Signs New Two-Year Contract Extension

Diego Simeone has signed a two-year contract extension at Atletico Madrid.

The new deal keeps Simeone at the club until 2020.

Diego Simeone has been at the Vicente Calderon since 2011, guiding the club to a shock La Liga title win in 2013/14, as well as to two Champions League finals.

Simeone’s deal had been due to expire at the end of this season, with Arsenal most recently linked as potential suitors of his amid doubts over Arsene Wenger’s position last season.

Chelsea and Manchester City have also been linked with Simeone in the past, as have Inter Milan, one of the clubs from his playing days.

Atletico began this season with a 2-2 draw at newly promoted Girona, before thrashing Las Palmas 5-1. They next play away to Valencia on Saturday.

Simeone originally agreed a deal that ran until 2020 two years ago, in March 2015, but he and the club agreed to a two-year reduction in September 2016.
