Atletico Madrid coach Simeone hails 2-goal Suarez: My greatest signing...?

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone hailed two-goal Luis Suarez after last night's 2-1 win at Eibar.

Suarez was again decisive as Atletico maintained their clear lead at the top of the LaLiga table.

Simeone said, "A player with a hierarchy, he never leaves the game, he always plays with that intelligence he has.

"He found the goal in a situation of loss of ball with good recovery from us. And he sought the penalty, generated it and resolved it with great calmness."

Asked if Suarez was his greatest signing, Simeone was reluctant to commit.

He added: "I do not stop at this point to think about such an argument. He is extraordinary and we are very happy that he is with us."
