Simeone’s noble response to Rummenigge jibes
Atlético de Madrid’s coach said he had heard the comments made by Bayern’s Karl-Heinze Rummenigge and gave his reply.
During today’s press conference, Diego Pablo Simeone was asked about the disparaging comments made earlier this week by Bayern Munich President Karl-Heinze Rummenigge about the current Atlético de Madrid side.
Simeone replied concisely, giving a dignified answer: “I’m very surprised by what he said,” El Cholo began. “I’m surprised that someone who was a magnificent footballer during his playing days, and one who, for his characteristics, would have fitted in perfectly at Atlético de Madrid would state his opinion in that way. He was a very similar player, with similar qualities, to some of the players we have here”.
