Atletico Madrid boss Simeone made gesture to Milan fans after chants in second half

By Oliver Fisher -

Diego Simeone appeared to get quite wound up by the chants of some AC Milan fans during last night’s game at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Simeone probably isn’t considered as the favourite opposing manager by Milan fans given his past at Inter and also given how the first meeting between Milan and Atletico Madrid went, during which the Argentine’s side got a number of controversial decisions in their favour including a red card and a penalty in stoppage time.

MilanLive writes how Simeone is known for his volcanic and lively temperament, something which he does not hide during games as he often dashes out of his technical area and shouts at both his players and the officials if he is unhappy.

In the second half of last night’s game, a large group of Milan fans present in the stands at one point sang a song that was certainly provocative towards Simeone. He did not take the songs well as – according to Amazon Prime Video – he responded to the Rossoneri fans with ‘a bad gesture’, while a fan present at the game has told us he ironically blew kisses at the Milan fans.

    Simeone is trash. His club plays negative football and they are violent. Then, when they’re are on the receiving end of a crunching tackle they roll around on the grass like they’d just gotten assaulted, with Simeone wildly gesticulating and yelling from the sideline. I hope Porto goes through if we can’t beat Liverpool.

    There are institutions for people like him.

    As soon as Theo got mowed down, on the first play of the game, it was obvious what Atletico’s “strategy” is going to be.

    Luckily, Milan kept their cool and played tough football, without ever going overboard. The yellow cards they got were all soft. They were exceptionally level headed, never saw them handle a dirty team this well before. It’s a very good sign for the future.

    Simeone is a kinda too emotional and often goes too far with his expressions 🙂 But his football is trash. Having Suarez, Grizmann, de Paul and Felix and other talented attackers in his possession and playing coward football.
