Speaking in an interview with Goal, RB Leipzig’s 32-year-old head coach Julian Nagelsmann described his admiration for Atlético Madrid boss Diego Simeone.

Diego Simeone has been teaching a similar football style for years, which is not always pleasant for his own players and is not always the most exciting, but the players still follow him unconditionally, he must have an extraordinary gift.

I believe that 99 percent of the coaches who would only play 4-4-2 flat, very low and so nasty, would be burned after two years, but not him. He runs around like dynamite and is still well-received by his players. He must have something that will cast a spell over his players. It’s extraordinary.”
