Profile

Diego Simeone, aka El Cholo, has established himself as one of the top managers in world football since taking charge of Spanish outfit Atletico Madrid in 2011.

Under Simeone Atletico are incredibly organised, balanced, and extremely difficult to beat. The Spanish capital club have perfected the art of frustrating opponents and grinding out results, however they've also excelled in attack, with the club famed for producing a series of stunning strikers in recent years.

Simeone's tactical ideology is titled "Cholismo", which involves teams working as a collective unit, with everyone committed to the same goal, as opposed to focusing on individuality.

The man in black famously shattered the Barcelona-Real Madrid duopoly after leading Atletico to the La Liga title in 2014, while his troops came agonisingly close to hoisting the Champions League in the same season.

Diego Simeone Quotes

I want to thank all the mothers of my players for giving them big balls.


I manage a team as if it were my family. From that feeling, everyone makes up a part of my team. From the club president to the groundsman. The most difficult thing is to make them all feel that they are an important part within the group. It's a difficult task, but if you achieve such a thing, it's easier for success to come.


Call me crazy, but I would never coach Real Madrid. I am a fan of Racing and Atletico. I would never coach Independiente and I wouldn't coach Madrid. It would be foolish.
