Atletico strengthened their position at the top of the table with the 5-0 win and dismissed claims of this season's competition being weak.
He said, "The most important thing is to be able to win. It is what gives you peace of mind for the next day. You said the Spanish championship was not at a high level; There is Madrid in the semifinals of the Champions League, Villarreal in the semifinals of the Europa League, Barcelona winning the Copa del Rey, Sevilla competing with four teams positioned to become champions and it is a very beautiful final where we want it not to be monotony and always Real Madrid or Barcelona win."
Simeone was also asked about the Super League breakway.
He added: "I repeat, I am a coach and I am prepared to coach wherever they tell me. I have no doubt that the club will decide what is best for us."
