Manchester City managed to reach the semi-finals and have to face Real Madrid.

Atletico Madrid

boss Diego Simeone has claimed that he has been disrespected by

Manchester City

boss Pep Guardiola.

City and Atletico met in the quarter-finals of the Champions League when Pep Guardiola's team reached the semi-finals of the competition with a single goal by

Kevin De Bruyne

. Atletico made a great effort last night to win against City at the Wanda Metropolitano, but failed to open the scoring. The two teams had just a total of six shots on target in two games, the lowest number since Deportivo La Coruna and Porto faced in the 2003-04 season. Relying on his defensive strength, City advanced to the next round and Simeone claimed that he felt Guardiola had disrespected them.

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

"Very intelligent people with a great vocabulary can, while using words of praise, show they despise you. But those of us who don't have the same vocabulary are not stupid."

"I think that football has a lot of different dimensions and I'm not going to comment on how Manchester City behaved,"

Simeone added.

"It is you [the media] who are very capable, you see everything very clinically and obviously you always express an opinion, because football is full of opinions, but we keep ours to ourselves.

"I think playing against possibly the best team in the world and showing that we were able to compete very well doesn't leave me feeling okay, it doesn't leave me feeling happy at all, because the only thing that leaves me happy is winning.

"I feel f***ed, but it gives me the peace of mind that when I go to bed I will say that today my father, Luis Aragones and those who passed away in the pandemic will have seen from above their team continues to compete extremely well."
