Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone admits he's finding the January market frustrating.
With players being linked with exits this January and at the end of their contracts in June, the Argentine admitted that sometimes things are beyond his control.
"We are always in the hands of the club in everything that happens," Simeone said.
"They tell me their needs and we explain the sporting side to continue growing.
"We take decisions together to continue, thinking along the same lines but we always attend to the needs of the club first.
"The club is above all of us."
