Atletico Madrid midfielder Simao Sabrosa can understand the fans' anger, but insists sacking coach Javier Aguirre is not the answer.

"We're not fooling anyone, we want people to enjoy themselves and to go home happy with what they have seen," said the Portugal international. "But the fans have a right to demonstrate their discontent. The best thing they can do now is to be with us and support us because we're noticing them a lot, we are the first who want to win.

"I've been in many teams and with many coaches and dismissing the coach is not the solution, what is most important is the project that the club is building."
