Atletico Madrid president Cerezo tells 'keyboard warriors': No-one doubts Simeone

Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo says coach Diego Simeone's job is safe.

There had been question marks over the Atletico boss after a tough few months, but his side have responded with impressive victories over Liverpool and Villarreal.

"I'm warning the keyboard warriors: no one is doubting Simeone," Cerezo told Radio MARCA.

"The whole club and all the fans are behind him, I'm sure that we're going to do great things this season."

Atletico will travel to Liverpool for the second leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie in two weeks' time and Cerezo is looking forward to it.

"We're going to Anfield with lots of excitement and with a great result," he said.
