Atletico Madrid boss Simeone shuts down Chelsea talk

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has shut down talk of a move to Chelsea.

With Maurizio Sarri's future with the Blues in doubt, the Argentine has been linked with the job.

“I like my job, I feel very identified and committed to the club," he said, speaking after Tuesday's 2-1 friendly defeat to Beitar Jerusalem.

“I know that year on year it's always more difficult and that makes us see our real selves and generate enthusiasm.

“Next season there will be football players who will arrive with great enthusiasm and hopefully adapt to the responsibility that means being at Atletico Madrid."
