‘I’d love him to manage Chelsea’ – Former Blue says of Diego Simeone

Diego Simeone has done a massive job at Atletico Madrid since he took charge 11 years ago.

Simeone has strengthened Atletico’s position as one of the toughest sides to play, not only in Spain, but in Europe.

Atletico have the image of being the bad boys of football, but none can doubt their tenacity, passion and desire.

Former Chelsea defender Jason Cundy has suggested that he loves Simeone’s approach to the game, and would love to see him manage Chelsea one day.

“If he rocked up Simeone at Chelsea, he is perfect. Honestly, he is absolutely perfect for Chelsea,” the ex-Chelsea defender told talkSPORT.

“I would love to see Simeone in the Premier League. We would be the most hated club in the world again.

“If Tuchel goes, for whatever reason in the next two or three years Tuchel goes, and Simeone rocks up, imagine that.

“Imagine how hated we’d be. Who cares! We’ve been hated for the last 15 years!”
