Diego Simeone - 'Atletico Madrid is my life.'

  • Simeone is disappointed with Atleti's run of form.

  • The Rojiblancos boss said 'I am convinced and I believe in my players.'


Diego Simeone is eager to turn Atletico Madrid's woes around, saying that he is always thinking of his team.


The Argentine isn't happy his side have suffered three defeats on the bounce in all competitions ahead of their LaLiga clash against Leganes on Sunday.


"I'm always thinking about my team," the Rojiblancos boss said in his pre-match news conference. "I don't think in the moments when we lose or when we win, but I always look after my team.


"Sometimes I can't sleep thinking about the line-up for a final or because we lost, or when I don't know which player to choose that will be better for the team.


Kepa Arrizabalaga must improve his form at Chelsea.


"Atletico Madrid is my life - the people who know me know that. We will keep the same path, with enthusiasm and passion.


"We live in the present and we go match after match and nothing will change in my life. We've been doing it for a long time now."


Simeone added: "It is clear that we are coming from two difficult defeats. All the criticism may seem fair, but I am convinced and I believe in my players.


"We have a great team with players who will respond to goals that we have set, and I do not change from match to match. We are convinced of what we want and we will not change in that sense.


"I understand and accept when the criticisms are fair and work accordingly to have a good game [on Sunday]."
