Cerezo: "El Cholo will be here until the day he wants"

Enrique Cerezo hopes Diego Simeone stays at Atletico Madrid longer.

Enrique Cerezo hopes that Diego Simeone will stay with


for many years.

Cerezo spoke about Simeone's joining Atletico in 2011:

“Simeone’s arrival came because the team was not going well. We were lucky to meet Simeone, who had trained in Italy, and in Argentina. It was a gamble, but we did not see it as a risk, because we were completely sure that he was going to do a great job, and he had shown his affection for the club.”

He told Diario AS

“He had high hopes of coming to Atletico. He came, but he came for good. It’s been eleven years, and it very difficult to have this length of stay in Spain and in Europe too. He has been fortunate that his work has been rewarded with titles. He will be a coach who will always remain in the club’s memory.”

Cerezo also spoke about continuing to work with Simeone, whose contract will expire in the summer of 2024:

“El Cholo will be here until the day he wants. The day he wants to leave, he will leave. Let it be within a long time, at least in another ten years.”

Atletico currently holds the third place in La Liga this season and has secured a place in the UEFA Champions League.
