Diego Simeone happy Atletico Madrid took Barcelona to FIFA

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone is happy with the action the club has taken against Barcelona.

Atletico have lodged a formal complaint to FIFA over Barca's public pursuit of Antoine Griezmann.

Simeone said on Thursday: "The complaint of Atlético? The club defends itself in the best way, seeking the best for the institution.

"Did I talk to him? Can he be affected? I see him involved. The other day, he forced himself to play against Alavès when he was not 100%.

"He is good with his teammates. I trust him."
