Simeone - All I can do is show them through actions, not words.

Diego Simeone believes he can turn Atletico Madrid's current woes around "through actions, not words" after they failed to bounce back to winning ways.

Rojiblancos were toothless in their LaLiga clash against Leganes on Sunday as they played out a goaless draw at the Wanda Metropolitano.

With no wins and just one goal from their last four matches in all competitions, some Atleti fans reckon their team has become stale under the Argentine. 

But Simeone, who has come under immense scrutiny in recent weeks, is still adamant he can turn things around to save their campaign.

"I can't say anything to the people [who do not have faith]," he told reporters. "All I can do is show them through actions, not words. Words mean nothing.

"I'm respectful with everybody. I was whistled because I wasn't doing well in my second spell at the club [as a player]. The fans are critical when the team doesn't win. And it's for me to find solutions to that.

"The first thing we need to do is to get back working. After that, I'll make my decisions based on what I feel is best for the team. We have a week to return to peace and calm, which is something you need in football.

"I have a great squad and a few lads are expected back from injury this week. On Saturday, we will be going out with the hope of winning the match."
