Spanish Football expert says Atletico boss Simeone isn't good for Man Utd.

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone would not be a good fit for Premier League giants Manchester United, despite the success he has achieved at Rojiblancos, says Spanish football expert Terry Gibson.

The 45-year-old, whose side are level on points with La Liga champions Barcelona and are five points clear of Real Madrid, has been linked with the Red Devils as United manager Louis van Gaal faces immense scrutiny for his style of play after their Champions League group exit and going five games without a win.

However, Gibson does not feel Simeone can restore the glory days at Old Trafford.

"I can't see him [Simeone] anywhere else," Gibson told Sky Sports. "It's such a good fit [at Atletico].

“He seems to have the power to run everything, to determine which players are bought in and which players are sold.

"He has the power to determine players that he's bought that he doesn't deem to be good enough with quite a quick decision to loan them out and the club take a small hit or a big hit on the players they've loaned out."

Gibson added: "I mean Cerci is an example, Josuha Guilavogui an example and Raul Jimenez too, he's gone off.

"Simeone gets the power and the authority to make those decisions, to play a certain style of football that out of the top three they are still recognised as an underdog and you can play the type of football that the Atletico fans are happy with.

"To go to Manchester United where they've got the oomph with the style of football, I'm not so sure it would be such a good fit."
