Atletico Madrid coach Simeone: Burgos will tell us his plans when he's ready

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone insists assistant manager Mono Burgos will make an announcement over his future when he is ready.

Burgos took charge of Atletico's 3-1 win over Villarreal with Simeone suspended, but the former goalkeeper has so far refused to enter new contract talks with Atleti.

"German and I have known each other for 24 years. We know each other too well," Simeone said in his post-match press conference.

"We know what we want as a working group, we have been lucky enough to win every time he has been in charge and he's a winner.

"He transmits this feeling of calmness, completely the opposite to me, but with that winning energy.

"I've already explained that when German has to give an explanation about a personal decision, he will do it."
