Simeone set to become world’s third highest paid coach

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone is set to agree a new contract with the club, reports claim.

Simeone took over Atlético in 2011 from Gregorio Manzano, and has shaped his squad in many ways just like he was as a player.

A tough defensive midfielder in his day, the 48-year-old’s side will look to grind out positive results with a disciplined and patient approach.

Silverware has backed up his style choice, most notably when Los Rojiblancos captured La Liga’s crown during the 2013-14 term.

A Copa del Rey, a Spanish Super Cup and two UEFA Europa League titles have also been added to the trophy cabinet.

The club and Simeone have truly built something special together at the Wanda Metropolitano, and it is now expected that he will sign a contract extension this month.

The Argentine’s current deal at the club is due to expire in 2020, but Diario AS claim that a deal has now been reached between both parties.

The new deal is expected to see Simeone become one of European football’s highest paid coaches.

Atleti, who beat Huesca 3-0 at the weekend – sit five points behind league leaders Barcelona and are readying themselves for a La Liga title race with Ernesto Valverde’s side.
