Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid finished ahead of Real Madrid and Barcelona to scoop the LaLiga title, and the coach has landed a new deal. Diego Simeone has boosted LaLiga champions Atletico Madrid by extending his contract with the club until 2024.
Simeone led Atletico to their first league title since 2014 at the back end of 2020/21, as they held off the challenge of Real Madrid in the final weeks of the campaign.
The Argentinian coach has stated his willingness to remain in the Spanish capital, and according to reports from Cadena COPE, via Mundo Deportivo, extension talks have already begun.
Simeone’s current deal at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano expires at the end of next season but he is keen to not let anything distract his side from their title defense.
The former midfielder is currently the highest-paid manager in world football and Atletico CEO Miguel Angel Gil Marin is willing to maintain the same terms on a new deal until the end of 2023/24.
Atletico’s success in the league title race ended a period of dominance for rivals Los Blancos and Barcelona with his second league win and a fifth major honor at the helm in Madrid
