Atletico Madrid coach Simeone: We're calm; I saw Barcelona defeat

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone insists there's no panic inside the club as their title push begins to wobble.

Atletico remain top of the table after Barcelona were shocked at home by Granada last night.

Simeone responded: "I saw the end of the game, normal, like any coach who watches a game, competing, and thinking about the only thing that matters to us, which is Elche. It is a team that is competing well after the arrival of Escribá, which has changed its format without losing traits that it already had, trying to become strong at home.

"The only thing you have to think about in the next game is to arrive in the best emotional way and trust the players who have had a very good season."

Asked if it would be a failure if they blew the title, Simeone added: "As I am a positive person, I don't think about negative things."
