Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea: Simeone pays tribute to Thomas Tuchel


Atletico Madrid manager, Diego Simeone, has lauded the impact Chelsea head coach, Thomas Tuchel, has had at Stamford Bridge since the German replaced Frank Lampard last month.

Simeone said Tuchel, who has won five and drawn two of his last seven games in charge of Chelsea, has already improved the team.

Speaking at a pre-match press conference on Monday ahead of Atletico Madrid’s Champions League last-16 first-leg clash with Chelsea on Tuesday night in Bucharest, Simeone said, “Tuchel has come to a financially very powerful club where year after year they make huge effort to sign big players.

“This year, they invested in talented, young footballers, and as soon as the team did not respond as they wanted it to, when they saw the investment did not pay, they made that change and brought in Tuchel.

“But it is a really big team, and since Tuchel’s arrival, the team has improved, he put a good change in the numbers.

“Just look at what players they’ve: we see a Chelsea squad with three good goalkeepers, lots of good forwards, lots of good players on the bench – players that could start for any team in Europe. The squad they’ve formed there speaks for itself.”
