Atletico Madrid coach Simeone: If a manager had Haaland and Mbappe together...

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone admits he's a fan of Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe.

Haaland netted a brace as Borussia Dortmund beat Sevilla 3-2 at the Estadio Ramos Sanchez Pizjuan on Wednesday and Mbappe scored a hat-trick in Paris Saint-Germain's 4-1 victory over Barcelona a day before at the Camp Nou.

"[Haaland and Mbappe] are two great players with different characteristics," Simeone told the press.

"If someone could have them together, they would have a great team."
