Simeone does not care what other people think of his tactics

Diego Simeone seems unconcerned about Arrigo Sacchi's scathing rebuke of his tactical nous following Atletico Madrid's Champions League defeat.

In reaction to criticism of his tactics following

's Champions League loss to

Manchester City


Diego Simeone

says he doesn't care what others think. After

Kevin De Bruyne

scored in the second half to give Pep Guardiola's team a 1-0 lead in the quarter-final encounter, Atleti lost the first leg at

Etihad Stadium


Simeone's team failed to register a single shot throughout the match, becoming the first team in the competition to do so in a decade, following APOEL in 2012. Ex-Atleti coach

Arrigo Sacchi

slammed the team for their performance.

Sacchi criticized Simeone's tactics, claiming that the Argentine's defensive qualities had changed his title-winning club into a "boring" one. Simeone, though, revealed ahead of his team's LaLiga trip to Mallorca on Saturday that he does not care to listen to their judgments. When asked about criticism of his method, he replied, "I don't think what others think." "Everyone is respected, and everyone has their own ideas."

"From a position of humility, we must continue to strive and give our all for Atletico Madrid. We can't put any value on what other people believe or say." After UEFA revealed they had begun an inquiry against the club's supporters, Atleti looks poised to face repercussions from fan unrest after their midweek setback.

The governing organization issued an official statement saying, "Disciplinary proceedings have been initiated in accordance with Article 55 of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations. The claims of discriminatory behavior [under] Article 14 [and] object throwing [under] Article 16(2) against Club Atletico de Madrid (b). "In due course, the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) will make a decision."
