Atletico Madrid boss Simeone tipped for Inter Milan

Former Catania chief Pietro Lo Monaco says Diego Simeone would be a great coach for Inter Milan.

Simeone has led Atletico Madrid to the Champions League semis.

Lo Monaco gave the Catania job to Simeone and said: "Simeone has to leave Atletico Madrid as a winner and start again at a club that shares his features.

"A team of blood, of strong passions, perhaps that he can revive. Like Inter, even if there is already a good Coach in Walter Mazzarri.

"I am glad for Simeone for what he is doing but also for us, that we were right at Catania to give him the bench a few years ago.

"We called him at Racing and decided together that it was right that we went for him. It is a duty of a club like Catania to focus on talented young Coaches, to launch them and know when it is the right time to let them go.

"Simeone is a leader, he drags the team and creates a group with the players. He is a lot like Mourinho, an exceptional Coach in psychological and motivational terms.

"Everyone loves him, he is a non-playing captain. He is one of those who weighs in with his personality, as was the case when he was previously on the field."
