Buffoons, it’s Simeone’s fault

The final match of Atletico Madrid-Manchester City infuriated the English who strongly attacked Simeone and Atletico, who would like out of the European cups.

The Manchester City he qualified for the second consecutive year for the Champions League semi-finals. Guardiola’s team achieved a feat by drawing 0-0 at Atletico Madrid. The final game was convulsive to say the least. The twelve minutes of injury time were full of ‘nastiness’ and even in the locker room tunnel the two teams did not spare themselves. An almost predictable ending considering everything that had been said in recent days by the two coaches, who do not love or esteem each other and do nothing to not prove it. And now in England there are those who defend City, attack Simeone and ask for the exclusion of Atletico Madrid from the European cups.

Atletico Madrid has a bad name. For years the white-red team has been accused of being unsportsmanlike, in particular this accusation is made to its leader the ‘Cholo’ Simeone. Atletico are criticized for a dirty way of playing, an approach that is not exactly clean, hard, severe, very old-fashioned. Lots of little things, like Savic’s hair-pulling at Grealish. A tactic that in the land of Albione is branded as a ‘Dirty game’ (which translated is a dirty game).

The last minutes of the second leg were a real riot. At 87 ‘Felipe knocks out Foden, who rolls on the pitch, the foul is there. The ‘rolling’ however produces a stop of the game and therefore a fight. About fifteen players confront each other, the referee lets them vent, then warns a couple, including Felipe who is sent off. The recovery was supposed to be six minutes, but it becomes nine and ends in last twelve minutes flat.

Manchester City-Atletico Madrid where to see it on TV and streaming on Amazon, Channel 5 or Sky: the formations

This is because in those minutes the warnings flooded, the wastes of time as well and the incorrectness (here and there) are not lacking, and in the middle Atletico also has two great opportunities. The post-game is furious. First of all, because in the tunnel some players of the two teams come into contact, big words fly, some blows and some shoves. And the police intervene.

Atletico-City’s sequel is equally furious. Meanwhile, because De Paul attacks Guardiola who is then also attacked by Simeone. It’s up to captain Koke to take the floor and defend Atletico, accused by many for his misconduct. The midfielder introduces himself to the press conference and sends a clear message direct to Manchester City: “They threw themselves on the ground and wasted time. Things for which people have criticized Atletico many times.”

John Stones, Manchester City defender and senator, awarded as best of the match after the game, was quite neutral, did not want to take pebbles off his shoe and said: “I thought we were going to play against a very experienced team that has a very low and strong defense. I am proud of my teammates and I am happy with the changeover. It was a great evening. A night in which everything worked perfectly, especially in defense. “

Rio Ferdinandformer defender of Manchester United and the English national team, has long been an appreciated TV commentator who this time was very hard against Atletico Madrid and Simeone: “There has been disgusting behavior on the part of some Atletico players, they should be embarrassed by some of the antics they have done”. Ferdinand pointed the finger above all on a footballer: “Savic above all, very hard. Congratulations on the way they played. They took away the rhythm of the City. Good from a football point of view, but what we saw in the end you never want to see on a football field.”

While the former defender of City and the English national team Jolyon Lescott pointed the finger at Simeone: “Atletico did well, but for the last 10 minutes you can’t forgive him. Simeone has to take some responsibility for that, he seemed to encourage that behavior.”



Even harder than the fans who went down heavily on social media against Atletico Madrid. And for what they saw in the final match with Manchester City they asked for the exclusion from the European cups of the Colchoneros: “Atletico should be banned from Europe next season. They are fools. All this is produced by Simeone. This is a horrible team.”
