Barcelona coach Xavi admits he and Atletico Madrid rival Simeone don't get along

Barcelona coach Xavi admits he and Atletico Madrid counterpart Diego Simeone don't get along.

Xavi spoke of their rivalry after last night's 4-2 win.

He said, “What he is looking for is different. He understands football in another way. But we don't hit it off. He understands football in another way. It's not a joke, there are many ways to play football. He understands it differently. Not having the ball feels comfortable. If we don't have the ball, I'm sweating. It is antagonistic to what Barça is looking for.

"The victory has a lot of merit, very well worked.

"Look at his record, I have an incredible respect for him. But we don't agree on what we want on the pitch. The first half is what has been seen, one team and another."
