Atletico Madrid coach Simeone: Someday I'll have to leave

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone admits his job won't last forever.

The Argentine has today raised the prospect of eventually leaving Atletico for something new.

Simeone said, "Atlético has been my life, although it sounds simple. They are already, between player and coach, 15 or 16 years in this club. It made me grow as a footballer, I came back, I left, I came back again, there were joys, sadness... And I am required to vindicate myself day by day and I love it.

"Life is like that, it changes from one moment to another. Against Valencia, the first half seemed like death and the second, life. You have to choose where to be.

"Almost my life is set on Atlético. But someday I'll have to go, everything begins and ends. Hopefully it will be with a fair and good decision for all and the best for both parties. It doesn't mean more pressure to be a fan or the love I have for the club. I know it has to win, but I put aside my ego even though some think not, but I put them aside for the good of the club and the goals."
