Man City Is The Best team In The World- Atletico Madrid Coach, Diego Simeone
Atletico Madrid head coach, Diego Simeone has declared Premier League bigwig, Manchester City is the best team in the world.
In the wake of his side’s 1-0 defeat to Pep Guardiola’s boys in a hair-raising Champions League first leg clash, the argentine has eulogized the high quality of their football counterpart.
Though the mattress makers proved stubborn with relentlessness defense, they failed to give their rivals a run for their money as the Citizens pocketed all three points with a win.
The 51-year-old gaffer berated his squad’s failure to follow through with the plans made behind the scenes in the first half of their 1-0 defeat to Manchester City on Tuesday night at the Etihad Stadium.
In a post-match interview, Diego Simeone expressed optimism at his team’s chances to flip things around;
”We didn’t play the way we wanted in the first half, we couldn’t break out.
It was a bit better after the break, but City are the best team in the world. They have scored so many goals at home in the recent past.
But this is half-time and let’s see how the second game goes in Madrid.”
The La Liga giants go into the heated second leg-tie slated for the 13th of April with hopes of taking revenge on City for Kevin de Bruyne’s 70th minute goal.
