Atletico Madrid president Cerezo reaffirms his total support for Simeone


Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has reaffirmed his total support for Diego Simeone.

He insisted that the tactician is  “untouchable” at the club.

Atletico have found the net just 16 times in 11 league games so far, while their failure to beat Qarabag in back-to-back Champions League meetings leaves the 2016 finalists in serious danger of missing out on the knockout stages of the competition.

However Cerezo still believes the coach is worth it.

“I want to say this in a loud voice: Simeone is untouchable at Atletico Madrid, for the players, for the directors and for the supporters,” Cerezo announced in an interview with Marca.

“Having doubts about Cholo Simeone is not allowed here.”
