now let's get into it

Simeone

had been a top-level midfielder during his career representing

atletico

madrid

over two spells as well as other top clubs such as inter milan and Lazio but in 2006 he hung up his boots to become a manager starting in the Argentinean league he went through some tough spells amongst the six teams he managed however overall he was a success winning two major trophies he had a brief spell with Italian side Catania but it was when his former club came calling that
everything changed

Atletico

Madrid

had enjoyed a new lease of life under kijiye Sanchez Flores win in the Europa League and the UEFA Super Cup but still only finishing seventh in the league but under new manager Gregorio Manzano

atletico

madrid

struggled heavily and in fact by the time he was fired Atleti were only four points above the relegation zone and averaging just one point one eight point per game was only scoring one point for four goals per game and simultaneously conceding one point
six nine goals per game semi oneis impact was instant and was a sign of things to come in his first season

Simeone

didn't altered the existing 4031 not wanted to make too many changes at the same time instead of focusing on the formation he dealt with the mentality and the actual playing style the traces of his playstyle were beginning to be prominent with the team now being more compact in defense and depending on quick counter-attacks when going forwards Radamel Falcao was at the peak of
his powers in the center for draw in the ability to hold up the ball played long to him to allow

Diego

an attacking midfield to join him or to give the team time to progress up the pitch however folk are also had outstanding movement meaning that he could probe for gaps waiting for a more direct pass in behind with a combination of defending solidly and having a world-class forward

Simeone

led them to a seven match unbeaten run to start off with the out dependence was shown with him having over
three times more goals than their second top scorer looking at the table after

Simeone

took over unless he were only behind rial and vasa now averaging one point six eight points per game scoring less with one point three six goals per game but crucially only conceding 0.86 scores per game a theme that would continue the season culminated in

Simeone

leading them to the europa league and finishing fifth in the league their highest finish in over three seasons 2012-13 saw chalice amor in full

effect he knew the physical demands of his playing style and broaden in fitness coach Oscar Ortega he also got rid of key players in Savio Dominica's Pacheco and

Diego

returned to Wolfsburg after alone he didn't have much to spend a common theme in his early days but brought in in sewer and brought back

Diego

Costa from loan along with raw Garcia

Simeone

focused on establishing a physical spine to suit his intentions cuarto continued on alone and the formidable Gordon and Miranda
partnership became permanent Suarez and Gabi played in behind Falcao and

Diego

Costa athletic often gave up possession only having 48% of the boar but they still conceded the lease goals in the league was just 31 this was because of a defensive system they chose to implement they also only took 30 put two shots per game but took the highest percentage from inside the box his strong defense was inspired by a 4-4-2 formation although he missed in the 4-2-3-1 in 37% of league matches of course the
players are physical but the defensive system was effective in this self broadly speaking that employ a 4-4-2 mid-block often they would impress but when they did it was as a team and very aggressively with a forwards waiting for press trigger such as a bad touch or bad pass which allowed the team to swarm in a man oriented press but usually they allowed opponents to play into midfield which creates space behind the defense Alette he would leave space wild and in this pocket for the defensive
midfielder if the opposition played the pass into the pocket and let he would spring they're pressing trap closing off all options and winning the poor but because other Turan and Koki would both rather be in the centre of midfield they tucked in allowing space wide as soon as the ball did go wide I let his lateral press cut off all options and the touchline acted as an extra defender so that often win the ball here and naturally a counter would be launched down the wing and towards the box
the strength of one front and louie's meant that a let you were comfortable leaving them in 1d ones against the wingers which allowed to Ron and Coca to tuck in Bowen opponents did get high up the two banks of four would often fall all the way into the box to increase the odds of winning the borne the cross came in at Miranda and Gordon's area presents suited this their press was intense they're the most tackles per game and conceded the least shots per game and the d-block men that
they conceded less than a goal per game Falcao was still comfortably their top scorer but

Diego

Costa was the viennese idea Ford and began to have an impact at Letty finished third the highest position in 17 years and won the Super Cup but most importantly they won the Copa d'Oro against Real

Madrid

their first victory over them in 13 seasons this win cemented the club's faith in the manager and now they implemented Simeon his tactics without hesitation setting them up perfectly for 1314
how diego simeone transformed atletico madrid simeone s legacy atletico madrid s evolution
in 1314 I let you were now recognized as a team to watch across Europe his tactic was still similar as he said himself were a tough team strong intense powerful at counter-attacking I don't want this to ever change we don't know how to play any other way should we change our style it would be a total disaster again

Simeone

showed an ability to work on a shoestring budget selling Falcao for 60 million euros was bringing in key players in Jimenez via and other virile and more for less than
half of that fee the first eleven was largely the same but via came in and Costa was now the main go threat in this season he fully committed to the 442 playing at an 87% of league matches he used a similar defensive mechanism but to an increase in goals for the team as previously discussed Terron and Koki would both rather play central which is key quick transition are at the core of their play so even in controlled possession they look to advance the boy into midfield as quickly as possible
whether through long balls straight to the wards or direct short passes into midfield and let's he only average 26 percent of their time in their own defensive third as a result but Gabi would often drop deep to receive the poor at the same time Turan and Koki would both tuck in field forming a 4-2 - - allowing both Luiz and one front hi who are both crossing threats so the opposition window would often be drawn to the Atleti midfielder who could also drop deep to create a space here vias
movement meant that he could often drop as well to create a two versus one here where they could work across into the center and let he often look to overload the box in these phases to help their odds with the wingers draining the two fours in the box but they weren't afraid to be direct either with via often receiving the ball long to turn and play

Diego

Costa in due to their physicality they were also always strong at set pieces under

Simeone

scoring the second most in the season Costa
was key stepping into Falcao's boots seamlessly was via also contributed cook his creativity from the right was crucial to them once again the season culminated with athletic t'v ly winning a playoff against Barcelona to win the title a semi-final appearance at the copa del rey and a painful loss to eternal rivals

madrid

in the final of the Champions League I'd let you were no longer Dark Horse's but now wore one of Europe's biggest threats however in 1415 they lost key
players in Felipe Louise Costa and via a lady was still not financially free as they were now making plans to move to their new stadium they still managed to bring in Korea Griezmann or black and months which the tactics as always were largely the same but the dynamics were no different with Mansu kitchen cost to up top was Korea and Griezmann did provide some space Mantzoukas manaus reduced threw it on the counter as shown by the team went out to only one call on the break this reduced their
threat and the fact they scored 10 goals less throughout the season but even in this suppose a down season for the new Atleti they still finished third in La Liga in addition to a Champions League quarter-final appearance and within the Supercopa de espa├▒a again semion his tactical acumen was shown with the Griezmann and Mandzukic almost exactly replacing Costa and vias output but it's interesting to note that in the following seasons

Simeone

was not perfect in the transfer window from 1516
going forward the La Liga TV rights deal was altered so that each team got an even share of the pot as opposed to the old model which gave reel and bass on 90% of the revenue the increased revenue turn automatically equal a higher caliber of transfer with Jackson Martinez via tow Camaro Guyton and Vitolo all being brought in for over 20 million euros each to limited effect despite this and continuing to lose key players like Rodri creaseman Ananda's Carrasco and more he has kept them at the
top of their game they haven't finished below third in the league and reached another Champions League final again losing out to Real

Madrid

on penalties this time by sticking with Simeon he's tried and tested tactics and pushing through periods of apparent staleness he led them to a Europa League win in 1718 and a Super Cup win in 1819 all of this means that in his six and a bit seasons of managing the club the side have won six major trophies and reached two Champions League finals
it's not just the results on the pitch that have been impressive several teams have struggled we're moving from one stadium to the other but simonia seamlessly led the transition from the Vincente Calderon to the Juan de metropolitano without a problem finishing second in both seasons at the new stadium whilst winning two European trophies in that time span it's no exaggeration to say he's

transformed

the club and he's done so by sticking to his core values a 4-4-2 formation
that allows them to be strong in defense and lethal on the transit being aggressive off the ball when they do decide to press candy manoeuvring in the transfer market and establishing an unbreakable team spirit and cut like trust in his method which means that his players often outwork the opposition but where we'll see Muniz transformation of the club end well we'll have to find out but that's all for today and remember keep it simple
