Simeone aiming for Champions League success this season

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has said his side’s main focus this season is the Champions League.

After failing to win the the competition on two occasions, losing both final appearances to bitter rivals Real Madrid in 2014 and 2016 – Simeone is keen to focus on winning the title this season.

Speaking before his side’s visit to the Stadio Olimpico on Tuesday evening, the Argentine boss said their motivation this season was on the competition and not on La Liga.

“Our motivation is simple: to win the Champions League,” said Simeone to reporters.

“We know how strong the sense of pride is to reach finals so our ambition must now be to lift the trophy.

“One we were one minute from winning and the other, we lost on penalties so you can see how close we are – you can see we are doing all we can.”

Having come narrowly close on two occasions under Simeone, the current Atleti squad are full of experience and the former midfielder believes that will help them get close once again this season.

“We have all the experience necessary and have now had a number of big results in the competition, sooner or later we will win it, we are getting closer.

“When I arrived at the club, they had not been playing regularly in the Champions League for many years and everything we have done is with the aim and objective of winning the trophy.”

Meanwhile, in other news related to Atleti – Sevilla have said they will be taking court action over the signing of Vitolo.

The Spaniard was linked with a move to Diego Simeone’s Atleti following the end of the season but due to their transfer ban – a move was seemingly ruled out.

However, despite a reported new contract with the Andalusian side, Vitolo eventually made a €37.5m move to Atleti this summer, before being loaned out to Las Palmas until January due to the capital side’s transfer ban and inability to register new players.

The move caused much debate in Spain as Sevilla were reportedly close to putting pen-to-paper on an improved deal for the winger and they will now take legal action over his exit.
