Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed he is a big admirer of Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone.

Simeone has been in charge of Atletico since 2011 and has long established a clear playing identity that has brought two Champions League final appearances and a Europa League title.

“I like a team which is the image of their manager and I think he’s certainly proven that over the years he’s been there with the discipline of the team, how they are very strong with their game plan,” Lampard said.

“When you watch them, you understand the way they play. You could watch them on TV, turn the colour off and you would still understand that Atletico Madrid are playing. They are very sure in the way that they play.

“They have quality players around that as well and the manager has driven that club for a lot of years so they are a very confident and experienced European outfit.”
