Simeone refutes speculation of quitting Atletico Madrid2022-10-12 09:12
Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has denied talk of a possible exit from the club after two consecutive defeats against Club Brugge. Spain is last in Group B with three points, six behind top-placed Belgium .
Another defeat will add to the pressure on the Argentina boss amid mounting speculation from fans and local media about his future after a decade in charge.
Criticize the head coach
Atletico were knocked out by Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals last season, failing to reach the semi-finals for the fifth consecutive season. Simeone's use of star striker Joao Felix , who has failed to score this season , has also sparked criticism of the manager who is fully responsible.
" Everything bad that Joao Felix has done, I have done worse because I didn't give him what he needed to reach his potential, " Simeone said.
" joao is important for the club and for the team. It's frustrating that he hasn't found what is most important to him this season , which is scoring goals. "
Three points tied with Porto and Bayer Leverkusen , Simeone said he didn't think Wednesday's match against Club Brugge in Madrid was " like a final " , but it was a game Atletico could not afford to lose.
" We know the importance of this game. We need to do well, for that we need to give our best and we need our fans to show up, " Simeone said.
