Sister: Simeone believes still much to do for Atletico Madrid

The sister of Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone insists he's happy at the club.

Natalia Simone also acts as Diego's agent.

“At the end of the day, passion always wins out. Diego has been with Atletico for seven years. He is one of the best Coaches in the world, but he remains when he knows there is still work to be done. And I accompany him."

Diego's son Giovanni is currently impressing in Serie A with Fiorentina and this week scored on his senior debut for Argentina, but the family business doesn't stop here.

“Giuliano Simeone is 15, he is Diego's third child, and currently playing at River Plate. He's the most talented of the lot. They make him play as a centre-forward, but I always preferred him in a Number 7 role rather than a 9."
