Godin played for Simeone's father, Diego Simeone, at Atletico Madrid and says the striker has a big future ahead of him.
He told AS: "Gio is a great boy, very good, a piece of bread. He has a very good attitude, he trains well, he is always positive, he is always trying to improve, he talks to the coaches to see what he can improve, to find out where he went wrong.
"And he has a physical strength that is what gives him that plus near the area, he is a great finisher. He told me that in the Italian league it is more difficult for him because he has to play many times on his back, the defences are very tight, they are very tactical teams and he with space, reaching the area to define or running into space, he feels more comfortable.
"He has conditions, of course, to be able to try in another league like the Spanish one, in the English league ... I see conditions for him and he also has a lot of will. He will continue to grow and make his career."
