Eliminated from all international competitions, out of the Copa del Rey and quite far from the leadership in LaLiga Santander, the mattress club points all the responsibility to Cholo Simeone
There is no doubt that the Athletic is signing one of the worst seasons in many years, and perhaps the worst since the coach Diego Simeone. At the end of last year, the mattress club was left in the last position of its group in the Champions League, which also meant being left out of the Europa League.
As for the Copa del Rey, the Athletic He had been signing a good campaign until he ran into Real Madrid. The match that was played at the Santiago Bernabéu was 3-1 in favor of the locals, sealing one more elimination. With that match, the only chance for the coach Argentinian to continue in office beyond the summer of this year.
The renewal of the Argentine coach is ruled out and Atlético is preparing to leave very soon
The mattress coach’s contract is signed until 2024, but everything indicates that it won’t even reach the end of this season. The general management of the rojiblanco team had already considered that option and now that they are full of arguments, there are no more excuses for not proceeding with the dismissal of Diego Simeone.
Although Atlético is in fourth position in the table, securing the last place in the 2023-24 Champions League, they are a long way from first place, the same one that gives the title. There are 13 points that separate Barcelona from the rojiblanco team, not counting the fact that Xavi’s men have one game left to play. It is already very difficult for the Madrid squad to think about winning something this season.
The Atlético coach is the one who earns the most in the world
Not long ago they revealed the list of the 10 coaches who earn the most in Europe and the World, and there are two from LaLiga Santander that appear there. One is Carlo Ancelotti in seventh position with a salary of 10.9 million euros per year. But the top 5 is composed like this. 5th Massimiliano Alegri (13.2 kilos), 4th Antonio Conte (17.8 kilos), 3rd Jurgen Klopp (17.8 kilos) and 2nd Pep Guardiola (22.6 kilos).
In the first position appears the Atlético coach, Diego Simeone with a salary of no more and no less than 39.6 million euros per year. He undoubtedly earns much more than the best paid player on the squad, which today is Koke with a salary of 16 kilos per year.
