Diego Simeone has high regard for Ronald Koeman and sympathizes with his counterpart's present predicament as Atletico Madrid are preparing to face Barcelona in LaLiga.

Roji Blancos are currently sitting fourth in LaLiga standing and have won just one of their past 11 games against

Barcelona

, who are struggling this term.

According to reports, the under-fire

Koeman

will be sacked shortly, although

Simeone

praised the Dutchman before their Saturday's clash in the Spanish capital.

"He will surely be in an uncomfortable situation and, on our side, I imagine that all of his colleagues respect him as a coach and he will surely always do well,"

Simeone

told reporters at Friday's pre-match news conference

.

"I am not the one to value anything. I respect Koeman very much, he has shown personality and I wish him the best. As for the transition, we are very busy with ourselves and we do not worry about what happens on another team.

"We think about the value of the rival players, Barcelona has great footballers, a very good coach with a lot of personality and we focus on doing well ourselves, improving ourselves."
