Diego Simeone says ‘very intelligent’ Pep Guardiola disrespected Atlético

Diego Simeone says he felt disrespected by Pep Guardiola after the Champions League quarter-final ties between Atlético Madrid and Manchester City.

Speaking after the match on Wednesday, Simeone discussed Guardiola’s assessment of Atlético’s conservative approach.

“I have no reason to give my opinion about what someone else says, good or bad.

“Those who have a great lexicon are very intelligent and they praise you with contempt. Those of us who perhaps have less lexicon are not so stupid,” Simeone said.
