In an exclusive interview with Diario Olé, Diego Simeone spoke about his life as a head coach.

“If you go to the cinema, the film can last for an hour and a half and it can be great, but in the course of a pause, or when it slows down a bit, you start thinking about who plays, whether João [Félix] plays or [Ángel] Correa plays.

“It’s difficult to tell the person next to you but in your head, you don’t stop thinking, even if you rest or go to sleep. And often my way of relaxing or going to sleep is to imagine how the team might line up.”
